Falmouth has well-qualified candidates for the Town Council in the June 12 election, and we should thank each of them for the willingness to serve our community. One of my votes will go to Karen Farber. Through her six years of service to the town on the School Board she demonstrated the ability to listen, to weigh the facts, and then to make the best decision she could considering all of the circumstances. The value of her contributions to the town as chairwoman of the Elementary School Building Committee, and leading in the selection of the School Superintendent in 2010, is in the results: a great building well under budget, and a superintendent who earned national recognition for high-performing schools. As a member of the council Karen Farber will bring her voice of reason to bear on each issue. She has earned my vote, and I hope yours.
