Letter: SAD 51 budget deserves voters' support

After teaching language arts in Dutchess County, N.Y., for over 25 years I retired to Maine. A drawback is that my New York State teachers retirement is taxed in Maine. However, the overwhelming benefit is living close to my family here. SAD 51's many faithful volunteers in local schools is an indication of true commitment to education for pupils of all ages.

High student participation in Greely sports and music programs complements their advanced scholastic achievement. Greely students' acceptance to so many outstanding colleges results from their hard work and accomplishment combined with an outstanding educational system. Evident here also is strong involvement in community and recreation programs, including many for adults. How proud we can be of such qualified, dedicated education.

Be present to vote yes at the SAD 51 public budget meeting June 7. Then affirm the positive vote at the Cumberland and North Yarmouth polling places on June 12.
