Letter to the editor: Cullinane’s knowledge, experience benefit ACSD

As a business and property owner in Middlebury, homeowner in Cornwall, and taxpayer in both, I would like to express my categorical support of Mary Cullinane for the ACSD School Board. Mary has worked tirelessly on multiple fronts, for many years, to strengthen and enhance our towns.

As a resident of Weybridge with children — not her own, but whom she cares for as though they were — who currently attend both local and district schools, Mary’s understanding of the issues facing families is as complete as any parent’s. And as a resident of a small-school town who owns property and a business in Middlebury, and who has been actively involved in addressing our community’s economic health, Mary possesses an intimate understanding of the challenges posed by our current system of governance and taxation.

I have worked closely with her in a number of capacities: as a colleague in civic work, as a client of her advisory business, as a tenant of The Stone Mill Public Market, and as an investor in the Stone Mill project. I have also called her my friend. In every one of those contexts, I have consistently encountered an earnest, professional person who considers all sides before espousing a plan.

Mary is, without question, one of the most thoughtful and dedicated people I know; I wholeheartedly endorse her candidacy for re-election to the ACSD School Board.
