Letter to the editor: State senator supports McGlashan

I am endorsing Amy McGlashan as the Ripton representative on the Addison Central School District Board. Given the turbulence of the pandemic and array of contentious issues facing local schools, it is a critical time to ensure our school boards are led by dedicated public servants committed to meeting the needs of students in all schools and communities. Amy McGlashan is such a person.

She has served the ACSD towns and schools for many years as a school board member and community representative on various school committees. She is thoughtful and knowledgeable and shares her expertise by teaching a class on Vermont school finance and governance each year at Middlebury College. Particularly during this period of transition for the Ripton School, it’s imperative that the district and town have continuity of leadership and an advocate dedicated to a fair outcome for everyone.

I have worked with Amy on the school board and at the college and know that she’s a person with integrity, a deep respect for our schools and community, and a genuine desire to do the right thing for all students. Please join me in voting for Amy McGlashan for the ACSD School Board. Thank you.
