Letter to the editor: Cullinane is the right choice

I support Mary Cullinane in her bid for another term to represent Weybridge on the ACSD board. She has proven herself to be a capable and thoughtful leader as board chair, and now, more than ever, leadership continuity is important.

Whoever will gain the contested Weybridge seat will confront the excruciatingly difficult, and ongoing, challenges facing the district. We have known for decades that declining enrollment and limited resources would eventually compel us to make difficult choices. The creation of a unified board and adoption of its charter provided the mandate and tools to do so.

As chair, Mary has approached these challenges in a methodical, fair and transparent manner so as to maintain excellence and equity across the district. Mary has the perspective, experience and demeanor we need in the person who will (hopefully) continue to lead the board. Please support Mary Cullinane’s bid for another term as the ACSD Weybridge representative.
