The Work Should Continue

When we vote for our local Board of Education, we need to remember that this is a local decision that impacts the children and families in our community, our neighbors, and our friends. I was educated through the Guilford Public Schools. I returned to Guilford and have now entrusted these schools with my two children. There is a tremendous record of success in this district, and I trust the direction that our current Board of Education has chosen regarding the teaching of some of the most difficult topics in our nation’s history.

I am not afraid for my children to feel some discomfort as they learn about some of the saddest chapters in our history. It is uncomfortable. I studied Marxism as Guilford High School, yet I did not turn into a Marxist. On Nov. 2, I will support the candidates on rows A and C—Moira Radar and Arnold Skretta on Row A and Kristy Faulkner, Jennifer Baldwin, and Noel Petra on Row C—because these five candidates also want to stay the course. This district is thriving, and the work should continue.
