To the News Enterprise:
As the polls close and the results are published, it is important to thank the citizens who stepped up to offer their knowledge and skills to the service of the community school. The fact that Johnsburg Central School District had three new candidates and an incumbent is a hopeful sign that people are interested in what goes on and are willing to get involved.
Change is not necessarily bad — in fact, sometimes things need to change up a bit to bring in fresh viewpoints, creativity, and talent. New candidates raise questions for the electorate to consider. You may not agree with all the statements made by candidates, but it is important to think about what has been said and assess the validity of the ideas. I thank Tony Moro, Amy Sabattis, Rachel DeGroat and Mark Richards for caring enough about our school to run for the school board.
