I write in support of Karen Campbell’s re-election to the SAD 51 School Board, recognizing that it is unusual for a sitting board member to publicly support a school board candidate. I take this step as a Cumberland voter to let the community know how valuable Karen has been to the work of SAD 51.
During her first term, I have seen Karen grow and work harder than any other member of the board, making her a tremendous asset for all students in SAD 51, present and future. I respect the service Jeff Porter has given this community and hope that he chooses to run in the future, as it is hard to get good people to run for School Board. But Karen, without doubt, deserves to be re-elected. It is vital that we keep such a superb board member. Please join me in voting for Karen Campbell’s re-election.
