To The Daily Sun,
I would love the opportunity to serve our community as a member of the Gilmanton School Board. Raised in Gilmanton for my entire childhood, I moved to Maine following my graduation from the University of New Hampshire, where I earned my Bachelors of Science in Business Administration. In 2010, a relocation landed my husband, our three children and myself back in my hometown. Since returning to Gilmanton, I have been able to share many of my fondest childhood memories with my own children, including those made at the Gilmanton School.
My three children our currently students at Gilmanton School, with the oldest graduating from the 8th grade at the end of this school year. As a parent and community member, I believe that our children's education is of the utmost importance toward cultivating them to be successful in all of their future endeavors. Our Blue Ribbon Award-Winning Gilmanton School is providing our children with a high-level of education, as a member of the School Board, I will work with our community to ensure that we continue to maintain that level of excellence.
Serving as the Gilmanton School PTA President for five years provided me with insights into the curriculum and enrichment programs that our school provides. Since my "retirement" from the PTA, I have continued to serve on subcommittees for the school, including the School Improvement Committee. As a taxpayer, I know that a balance must be met in providing a quality education at a cost that we all can afford. Using my background in accounting and financial services, I will work to find that balance if selected as your next School Board member for the Town of Gilmanton.
Please remember to visit the polls on March 14th.
