To the Editor:
Sometimes I think people are elected to school boards without much thought by the district voters, or sometimes school board members are elected because they are related to someone working for the district and sometimes people are elected because no one else wants the thankless job. The Beekmantown school district will soon be electing some new school board members and there is one person running who will be doing so for all the right reasons: she actually cares about the school, which includes students, faculty, administrators and those of us who live in the district. It’s rare to find someone like this and I believe she would be an outstanding school board member. Debbie Passno is that person and I encourage everyone to vote for her. She is more than willing to put the time in to do the job the way it is intended and I know she has the courage to make tough decisions based on common sense and knowledge. She will consider all sides and analyze the solutions and then make her decision based on the reality of the situation. So please join me and vote for Debbie Passno for the Beekmantown School Board.
