As emergency physician, I know intimately the value of education

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

My name is David Strang and I have been a resident of Gilmanton for almost 14 years.

As an emergency physician, I know intimately the value of education. Without it, I wouldn't be where I am today. I have not only been practicing for 25 years, but also serve on several boards and committees at the state level. On several of these, I act as chairman and in doing so have learned how to listen and work with both sides of an opinion in order to produce change and betterment. I am also a teacher, helping train medical students to be the physicians of tomorrow.

I would like to bring these skills that I have learned, back home, to the local level, in service to the Gilmanton School Board. I believe all board members have an inherent duty as representatives of the citizens of Gilmanton to spend our tax dollars wisely. Excellent schools train the leaders of tomorrow for our businesses, towns, nation and families.

I ask for your vote to help me accomplish this goal, for all of us.

David Strang
