Letter to the editor: Doria, McCallum social justice vision vital to ACSD

I am pleased to endorse two candidates, Joanna Doria (Ripton) and Jamie McCallum (Weybridge) who are running for the Addison Central School District Board on a platform of social justice.

According to information they shared with the group Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ), Joanna and Jamie “are committed to anti-racism, social equity, and funding for nurses and counselors in schools.” They believe that fighting for racial and socio-economic justice is vital to ensure the safety and well-being of all students in our district. They have recently been endorsed by Rights and Democracy.

In addition to being local parents and educators, Joanna and Jamie are committed to a vision for a just, multiracial democracy that works for all.

Please join me in voting for Jamie McCallum and Joanna Doria on Town Meeting Day, March 1. They are running at-large, which means they will both be on the ballot in every town in the ACSD.
