To the Editor:
I am writing on behalf of my wife, Debbie Passno, to encourage Beekmantown district residents to vote for her for the Board of Education. Debbie is passionate about the things she believes in and one of those things is education! She will work hard to find ways to contain costs and still ensure that our kids will continue to be offered a good education without adding undue burden to the taxpayers. She is a strong advocate for programs that enhance the overall education of our children. Our own kids participated in many of such programs, including, music, sports, AP and CAP.
She has an open mind and is willing to look at all affordable solutions to keep programs for the kids.
Debbie has been active in trying to get our current board to communicate more openly with district residents. She will promote the sharing of information and transparency. She is a team player who will work well with her fellow board members to look for ways to find sustainable savings for our district. She will also be accountable to those who elected her to represent them. She believes that district taxpayers want to have a voice and to feel that they are being heard. Our current board members have made it clear, time and time again, that they are not listening!
Ask yourself if you truly feel represented.
Please consider Debbie Passno for the Beekmantown school district’s Board of Education. She is truly running for the good of the district. We have no family employed by the district and our own kids are no longer there. Her decisions will be based solely on what is good for the district, the taxpayers and, most importantly, the kids!
