There has been no school issue more important to me in recent years than safety. Tragedies like Parkland hit all too close to home. As a parent and community member, I was eager to hear Connie Woytowich, Dean Kolligian and Ed Cubanski speak last week at the “Meet the Candidates” evening hosted by Saratoga Parents for Safer Schools.
While listening to their introductions, I realized how many other significant issues we have within our district. While safety is still paramount to me, all three candidates spoke about their plans to effectively improve upon our district’s education programs, student wellness, building infrastructure and facilities management.
Their qualifications and prior experiences in regards to volunteerism are beyond impressive. More importantly, their dedication to our community and our children is clear. They possess the commitment and experience we need now more than ever.
On May 21 I will be voting for Connie, Dean and Ed for the Saratoga Springs Board of Education. Thanks to all three of you for your determination to make our schools a better place for our children.
