Letter to the editor: One hopeful stands out in ACSD election slate

Kudos to the nine candidates running for four open positions on the Addison Central School District Board. School board directors have a difficult job, in my opinion, requiring solid experience and a special skill set to deal with the challenging school issues of the times. 

Kudos to all nine for stepping up and being willing to serve. Voters in all the towns in the district get to elect the four directors, so I’ve been studying up. 

One candidate that really stands out for me is Ellen Whelan-Wuest from Cornwall. Her experience in helping people with opposing views work together, talk about complex issues, and resolve problems is just what we need on the ACSD Board now. Ellen is down to earth, thoughtful, a good listener, and a proven leader. If you want to learn more, visit her webpage https://ellenforacsd.com.
