Waterford Green Party candidate has reader excited
As a lifelong Waterford resident, I am very happy to see our town expanding to include third party candidates for this election cycle. A prime example is Kevin Kelly’s Green Party candidacy for the Board of Education.
I have been privileged to work with Kevin for a number of years professionally in the world of higher education; however, I have been more fortunate to interact with him with various capacities regarding the children of our town. He has volunteered countless hours with the high school theatre program, Little League Baseball, senior league softball and on a church council. Kevin will bring a much needed perspective to the Board of Education. His can-do attitude and belief in educating the whole student to face today's and tomorrow’s challenges are just some of the qualities he will bring to the Waterford school board.
We need more people subscribing to the Green Party tag line of “fresh faces – fresh ideas” so that we can have a more diverse representation of ideas in our town government and town decision making. I hope others in town will join me as I vote for Kevin as a person who can bring new and creative ideas to the table in Waterford.
