Still Promoting Value of Public Education

Though only seven candidates are running for School Committee, the message is still important.

Learning that only seven people are running for the Newport School Committee's seven slots, I have mixed feelings about the process.  While it's good to know that I'll have the great opportunity to serve a third 2-year term, I find it a bit troubling that more Newport voters did not come forward to take a chance.  However, it is, and will continue to be, a privilege to serve the people of Newport.

With all this in mind, I hope to meet many folks during the election season as I help other candidates.  During that time, conversation about education--whether K-12 on the local level or major issues that affect our young people's future as contributing citizens--is most welcome.

Meanwhile, we will be gathering signatures from July 3-13 from registered Newport voters so that we may be entered onto the ballot on Election Day.  I hope to chat with you!
