Diversity of Experience

When you think about the important work the Board of Education does and the various constituencies it answers to, it becomes clear that diversity is essential to its success. A brief survey of the Board of Education here in Clinton reveals these details: two members have doctorates, two are educators with master’s degrees, two are local businessmen, and one is a retiree. This diversity of experience brings a balanced perspective that is critical in the decision-making process.

Board of Ed members here in Clinton do the hard work of scrutinizing every line item, holding the line where appropriate, and maximizing our scarce resources. They take their elected duty seriously, conscientiously representing all our various stakeholders. Spending up to 30 hours per month, Board of Ed members are dedicated public servants with a passion for making our schools the best they can be, and they deserve our respect. I encourage your readers to honor their hard work by voting “Yes” on May 13.
