Letter to the editor: Incumbent ACSD board members deserve support
James “Chip” Malcolm, Lorraine Morse and Steve Orzech are running for re-election to the board of the Addison Central School District (ACSD) and I urge voters in Bridport, Cornwall, Middlebury, Ripton, Salisbury, Shoreham and Weybridge to vote for this experienced, hard-working trio.
When I read and hear about the tremendous difficulties some Vermont school districts are having it makes me extremely proud of the communities served by the unified Addison Central School Board (ACSD).
It was not easy for our seven Addison County towns to come together. It required faith that each town would be respected and its children well served. Yes there have been some inevitable bumps, but on the whole the decision has been a good one — especially for youngsters across the district.
During the years Chip, Lorraine and Steve have served they have made essential contributions toward assuring that educational and fiscal goals are met — not an easy task. As communities and board together face and make critical decisions about ACSD’s future the accumulated knowledge of these members is a huge asset. Let’s take advantage of what has been gained through experience.
