More for M & M

April 13, 2011 - Dear Editor,

NOW is the time to put the past behind us and start with a clean slate. Decisions in the past need to remain there and whether someone voted for or against the bond doesn't matter. What does matter is the future of our children. We, as a community, need to set aside our differences and personal preferences and deal with the issues at hand.

We have a new superintendent to help us move forward. She is genuinely committed to finding the best possible solution for everyone in this time of economic downturn. Now, we need to be committed to being involved in what the future holds for our children. One way in doing so is to learn who the candidates are that are running for the Board positions in May.

I have had the pleasure of meeting both Melissa Miller and Birgit McQuiston at a "Meet and Greet" and in a personal meeting. Over the last ten years, I have witnessed their involvement in the community, both at the school level and at the Board of Education meetings and committees. I have heard them address the board of education on several occasions regarding many different topics. Each time they have presented themselves professionally, presenting research on the topic at hand and have offered legitimate alternative solutions. However, what impressed me the most was the personal meeting that I had with them.

They wanted to meet with me to find out about the Special Education area of education from a parents' point of view. They asked very detailed questions and questioned why certain things were done. They are the first two candidates that have ever shown an interest in needs and concerns of Special Education.
