January, 2023 – I am enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead for the Needham Public Schools, and eager to continue my service on the Needham School Committee.  We have accomplished much, and there are new and exciting challenges ahead.  I ask your support in my campaign for re-election to the Needham School Committee at  the Annual Town Election on  Tuesday, April 11th, 2023. I am looking forward to what we will accomplish together in the next three years for the students, families and staff of the Needham Public Schools and for our community as a whole.

I have a healthy skepticism for sound bites (and anything that promises answers in 240 characters or less…). That said, an appropriate “elevator pitch” can communicate purpose, intent and values effectively. The one I developed five or six years ago is simply:

We in the Needham Public Schools are preparing the next generation of citizens.

My work on the Needham School Committee, and my support of public education in Massachusetts, is guided by that view of our purpose.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me by e-mail by phone at 781 559-4623.
