The voters of Cumberland have some important decisions to make on June 12. This year there is a dynamic race for the SAD 51 School Board by two capable individuals. I have learned first hand the elements that make a good candidate and those that make a great candidate. Jeff Porter represents a great candidate.
It is unusual when a person, who has the depth of experience in municipal management and planning, forecasting and budgeting, business and state issues, years of community service to our town and an active dad, steps up to public service.
I know that Jeff Porter is the best candidate at the right time. Simply put, Jeff can from day one, successfully navigate the complex educational planning process to achieve an efficient, effective and high-quality education district for all our students.
