It is with much enthusiasm that my family endorses Town Councilor Chris Orestis for re-election in Falmouth. As a mom and elementary school teacher for the past 20 years my criteria for candidacy is admittedly kid-centric. Chris Orestis and his commitment to the Falmouth school system, the Cromwell Center for Disabilities Awareness and the National Anti-bullying Initiative is unyielding. I had the privilege of working with Chris Orestis on the development and implementation of an anti-bullying curriculum. As a result of his tireless dedication and belief that “all children have the right to feel safe at school,” the program has been adopted by several schools in Maine and nationwide. Chris Orestis is a successful businessman, a respected member of the Falmouth Town Council and above all proud father of four. Chris Orestis has proven he puts kids first and that platform secures our future and my vote on June 10.
