The person who is most qualified for our BOE in this year’s election is Sai Bhargavi Akiri.

She is well-versed in how this town runs and what is needed for the children and schools. Sai is one of the most intelligent people I know, and she has an impeccable background of education and business experience.

Not only does she attend Council and BOE meetings, but she is also not afraid to say what she sees as needing change.

Sai has volunteered with the BH Rescue Squad, and during the harsh winters, she has even taken care of elderly neighbors to make sure they had food and a generator. She has tended to sick neighbors. Her level of compassion and willingness to go the extra mile to help someone is something people should know given some of the things I've been hearing.

Sai is the same person now during the campaign that she was before she decided to run for office. So when you hear the word "character", I want you to remember that about Sai.

Her character is beyond reproach. She is what this BOE needs.
