|Hello Newton Families,
I am pleased to introduce myself to you as the Ward 5 representative to our School Committee. I’m committed to our schools and am dedicated to improving them in any way I can.
Our schools have been the center of a rich community life for my family, and I hope they will be for you too whether or not you have school-aged children. Our personal engagement is deep: My wife and I are involved parents of daughters at Oak Hill and Newton South, and I am a volunteer math tutor at Zervas. I sit on the Oak Hill School Council, and have been active with PTO activities throughout my children’s academic life.
|Beyond this, our schools have hosted community ed, athletic events, local organization meetings, polling, and are a community-building asset for everyone.
The skills I’ve developed as a structural engineer and local business owner apply well to the issues of the day – repairing our deteriorated school buildings, negotiating fair, affordable compensation for our teachers, and working creatively within our constrained budget. As a School Committee member, I aim to foster and support a collaborative approach and to represent you well.
I welcome the opportunity to talk with you about any issues of concern to you – and how we can address them effectively. Please contact me with your thoughts and questions.
