Letter: Withdrawal from RSU 5 is best for Freeport

As a Freeport High School alumna (Class of 2009) and an older sibling of a current freshman, I feel obligated to voice my opinion in support of Freeport withdrawing from Regional School Unit 5. I strongly believe that Freeport would have a more competitive, proactive and stronger education system by removing themselves from RSU 5 and exploring other options. A vote “yes” will express your support of a withdrawal committee formation and allow for the revision of the current system to begin. Please join me in voting “yes” on Dec. 17 for a post-RSU 5 Freeport High School. As members of this community, I believe its our duty to look out for the best interests of our students, children and siblings, and I think this withdrawal proposal has those best interests at the forefront.
