Letter to the editor: Bray, Hardy best for our schools

Considering education policy, I believe Chris Bray and Ruth Hardy are our best choices for Vermont senator. Chris has represented us well the past few years on the Senate Education Committee, where he has been a strong voice in support of our schools. Importantly, he asks good questions about the role of the state in local decision making.
Ruth has spent many years serving our school boards, first at Mary Hogan and then at ACSD. While I may not always agree with the positions she has taken, she has clearly thought a lot about schools and deeply understands the complex relationship between state government and local control.
Together I believe Chris and Ruth will be strong advocates for our kids and will serve as a counterbalance to pressure from the state to cut corners.
