Letter: Barrett appreciates Falmouth's support

I am writing to introduce myself to the citizens of Falmouth and to explain my reasons for running for School Board.

My wife Wendy and I have lived in Falmouth for seven years and have two children currently in our elementary school. We moved here largely because of Falmouth’s reputation for educational excellence. I intend to make sure that continues.

I look forward to helping shape the direction of our schools, representing the best interests of our students, and ensuring that we’re getting the best value for our tax dollars.

In the time that I have lived in Falmouth I have spent hours volunteering in our classrooms, served on the board of the Falmouth Education Foundation, coached youth sports, and actively engaged in the public dialogue about our schools. Community matters to me.

I appreciate your vote on June 10, and I encourage you to approve the school budget.

Josh Barrett
