Letter: Re-elect Cornell du Houx

As a teacher in the Brunswick school system, I have seen state Rep. Alex Cornell du Houx work hard for our children and urge you to re-elect him.  As his record shows, he has been a tireless advocate for Brunswick and for Maine.

At a debate he discussed a measure that he is proposing that would help prevent state funding cuts to Brunswick’s education budget once BNAS is fully closed. The measure he is proposing would exempt the base from the formulas that are used to calculate how much funding each school district receives, as the formula will be affected adversely by the base closure.

Alex has co-sponsored a bill in the Legislature that promotes physical education in school. He understands the importance of promoting physical activity for school children of all ages.

Alex also worked to implement a financial literacy program at Brunswick High School with former state Rep. Tommy Davison at no cost to the district.

Alex has also rolled up his sleeves and volunteered for the past six years in our local schools by tutoring in a variety of subjects. He has also helped our Brunswick Junior High School students by coaching lacrosse and soccer for the past three years.

Whether it is on the soccer field or on the floor of the Legislature, Alex Cornell du Houx is a steadfast advocate for our youth.
