Letter: Elect Christie in Cape Elizabeth

As residents of Cape Elizabeth, please join us in electing John Christie to the School Board. As parents of two, John knows that the decisions made by our board are an integral part of keeping our school in the top tier for the state. In addition to the beautiful landscape, we can all agree that a large part of living in Cape Elizabeth is due to the great school system. John's commitment to this very cause is one of the reasons he should have your vote.

We have known John during the last year, as our daughters were in the same kindergarten class last year, as well as living close to each other. He has two children in Cape schools. We can speak to his character as someone who is a great listener who takes all the information given before making a decision. He wants to hear opinions from residents and is a true believer in serving the community.

As a co-founder and CFO of a successful start-up technology company, he knows how to spend wisely to achieve positive results. He will work relentlessly to achieve the best outcome for the town.

John's voice on the board will certainly impact our responsibility of keeping our school system strong.

In talking with John, his wife Megan and children, it confirms how committed he is in maintaining and/or improving the wonderful community we have here in Cape Elizabeth. Please join us in voting for John Christie on Nov. 3.

Karen and Jim Ryer III
