School board candidate has worked for kids

To the editor:

I have known Rachel Phipps for many years and one thing I have learned is that she is a passionate advocate for kids and their families. She has worked on their behalf in many ways: as a social worker, as a volunteer in the schools, as an exchange student host and a member of many town committees.

Having served as a selectman, Rachel is fully aware of and sensitive to the costs of education, and at the same time, she has a deep commitment to making sure that in addition to teaching the curriculum, we also teach our kids to become responsible citizens.

Rachel’s holistic approach to education will be an important addition to the school board. Please join me in electing Rachel Phipps to the RSU 21 school board.
