Former Mayor Fair Encourages Write-In for Abbott

Dear Editor:
 
As former Mayor and 15-year Chatham Township Committee member, I urge voters to support Kathy Abbott by a write-in option on the ballot. I worked with Kathy on the Environmental Commission and on Open Space issues.  She always was thoroughly prepared to discuss ideas and options, helping us further goals of the Township.
Having served for five terms, I know how important doing one’s homework is to good decision making. Kathy has served Chatham Township for three years, completing important jobs such as the website update, hiring a new police chief, updating the Master Plan, and bringing attention to the town with the honors of Safe Routes to School Gold Recognition, an MCMUA award for the Single Stream Recycling Video, and an ANJEC Environmental Achievement Award for a demonstration Rain Garden.
 
She has shown successful relationship building with the Borough on the Community Garden shared services, and with volunteers on the 100 per cent donation-funded skate park renovation.  
 

She has responded carefully and responsively to all concerns brought to her by residents. There is so much more she hopes to accomplish, such as more financial transparency, hiring of a new Office of Emergency Management manager, and continued merging of the Borough and Township Recreation functions.
 
Kathy Abbott has earned your vote with her integrity, energy and her tireless dedication to serve the Township’s residents.
 
If you’ve never written in a candidate’s name, it is very easy.  On Line 5, go to the far right column, press the button that says “Write In.”  A keyboard will light up and you can type in Kathy Abbott. 
 
Sincerely,
 
Abigail Fair

Arlington, MA  02476

Spending More Per Pupil Doesn’t Guarantee Additional or Enhanced Success

April 20, 2018

Dear Editor:

At the April 16th Board of Education meeting, Board member Sal Arnuk stated: “I am ashamed to see the district at the bottom of the list in per-pupil spending.”  On the contrary, Board member Arnuk should be exceedingly proud of how our Board of Education is able to consistently be ranked as the top school district in our state at the cost it currently spends per ...
