I am writing to lend my strong support for three candidates for Falmouth School Board: Karyl Hazard, Analiese Larson and Lucy Tucker.
Hazard first started participating at School Board workshops two years ago, and since that time, we’ve heard her thoughtful, well-reasoned voice many times. She always looks at issues in terms of what works best for students. Karyl would bring a strong business background to the board, having worked in strategic management consulting for Fortune 500 companies in Boston and most recently for L.L. Bean as a marketing manager.
I’ve served with Larsen for the last three years. Most folks know that she has served as finance chairwoman and vice chairwoman for the last two years. What people may not know about Analiese is that she possesses a superior intellect, is a tireless worker, and is a fair-minded and objective decision maker. She is as tight with a dollar as any person I’ve served with.
Tucker has worked as a volunteer in the schools for the last 10 years and now seeks to extend those experiences to benefit the school district. Lucy is a graduate of Colby College, and we first met when she was a young executive at Key Bank. Lucy now works as a Realtor for Keller Williams, and volunteers in numerous community organizations.
All of these candidates come to the race with no political agenda other than maintaining the highest quality education possible while balancing fiscal constraint in this challenging economy.
Beth Franklin, chairwoman
