Letter: Brigham backs Hillman in Cape election

Beware the single-minded, single-agenda candidate for elected town office. In challenging times, the citizenry is better served by a team of super-heroes than a collection of lone stars.

Cape Elizabeth needs people like David Hillman on the School Board. He is a thoughtful, deliberate decision-maker. He voraciously gathers facts and data, thoroughly analyzes them, and then makes his decisions. He also uses the information and knowledge he acquires to generate creative suggestions and recommendations.

David has demonstrated his interest and passion for public education over the past several years, as a parent, school district volunteer and frequent participant in School Board discussions and workshops on a myriad of education topics, most notably the school budget. The comments he has shared have been germane, well-informed and thought-provoking. As a board member, I appreciated hearing his suggestions aimed at striking a balance between improving economic efficiencies while maintaining educational excellence. These are the types of discussions our community needs to foster in order to effectively address the economic and societal challenges facing us.

David Hillman's professional experience, exceptional work ethic and passion for education make him a great choice for School Board. A vote for David will be a vote in support of strong schools and a strong community.
