We in Meredith are lucky to have such qualified individuals stepping up to run for town offices. Chris Mega, who is running for Inter-Lakes School Board, is an excellent example. Chris' two children attended Meredith schools from kindergarten to graduation. Chris has volunteered countless hours in our schools, including assisting our award-winning "Weedbusters" team. His background in technology, music and business offers a unique combination of skills that would make a great addition to the make-up of our school board. Chris chaired the Meredith-based Lakes Region Symphony Orchestra for seven years, has managed Internet banking at Meredith Village Savings Bank, worked as a financial manager and planner for high net worth clients and holds two technology patents; in short, his skill set is vast and varied.
I am particularly attracted to Chris' dedication to the arts and to bringing the arts to students in meaningful, current ways. At a time when budget cuts often threaten these programs, I believe strongly that they offer students meaningful outlets and alternate means of expression. At the same time, Chris' understanding of the role of technology in schools and in our lives is current and forward-thinking; critical for our students today.
I support Chris Mega for Inter-Lakes School Board and hope other Inter-Lakes voters will do the same; remember all three town; Meredith, Center Harbor and Sandwich can vote for this seat on Tuesday March 12th.
