Michele Joyce wrote a letter last week quoting me as saying that as a parent of young children I have at times found the evening School Board schedule challenging. Referring to my candidacy in District 5 as a potential “empty space,” Joyce implied that I could not fulfill my duties on the School Board.

Clearly, I would not run for School Board if I did not plan on attending the meetings. My point was that extra provisions should be made so the whole community has ample opportunity to contribute to discussion on major issues before the Board finalizes decisions.
