Letter to the editor: Whelan-Wuest is an objective problem solver
On March 7th I will vote for Ellen Whelan-Wuest to serve on the Addison Central School District Board.
Earlier this year Ellen was chosen from a field of three candidates (that included Chris Kramer and Jeff Taylor) by the Addison Central School District Board to temporarily fill the Cornwall spot on the panel recently vacated by incumbent Peter Conlon.
I believe she was chosen because she demonstrated the best fit to address the ever-challenging responsibilities facing the ACSD Board. Ellen recognizes that the path forward requires a focused effort not to be sidetracked by single hot-topic issues. That effort takes specific skills and Ellen has a demonstrated history of strong collaboration through her work and volunteer commitments. She is practiced in sorting out complicated issues with many moving parts and brings strong problem-solving skills to the table. Ellen listens objectively and respectfully to differing perspectives and has already started the hard work we need to help lead our schools forward.
Having lived in Cornwall for more than fifty years and worked as an Early Childhood Educator in our SU/SD for much of that time, I care deeply about all our school communities, and I recognize ACSD faces complex and varied challenges ahead. I believe Ellen is the person we need to continue to move our SD in a positive direction.
Please vote on or before March 7th.
