The Final Countdown

The Final Countdown

Now that the election is winding down, I would like to take a moment to thank my friends and family who have stood by me and supported me during this process. I have found this to be a very enlightening experience. I learned so much about the BOE, the people of this town and politics in general. It has been rewarding watching the passion of people both towards candidates and the budget.

I can honestly say that given my past experience and continued dedication to our school district, I have the qualifications necessary to take on a leadership role as a BOE member. If elected, I promise to be an accessible listener to all, to be fiscally responsible to the taxpayers, and to advocate for the students of this wonderful town of ours. Unlike several of the other candidates, I have no conflicts of interest that prohibit me from taking part in any committee. I have attended all the BOE meetings and most of the budget sessions in the last year. I have questioned many controversial issues that have occurred in the last several years. I am not afraid to stand up for what I believe is “the right thing to do", even if it means standing all alone.

I have kept the promise I originally made to myself not to address negativity with more negativity. Instead, I have always tried to take the "higher road", and turn negative remarks into positive statements. I have admitted to errors when I made them, and respected those who have done likewise. I have always relied a great deal on my faith, and believe that the voters will do the right thing on April 27th, and vote “Yes” for the budget and elect Karin Szotak for the Board of Education.  

Karin Szotak
