I am supporting Paul Funch because he is the far better qualified candidate for the one-year term on the Groton-Dunstable Regional School Committee. He possesses integrity, intelligence, commitment, strong professional budgetary knowledge, and deep faith in the value of education. His opponent so far has concentrated on criticizing one aspect of the Funch platform: his willingness to help develop a sustainable cost structure for our schools so that all our children will receive the very best education we can afford throughout their school experience — not some children this year and some others the next. Paul Funch will also work hard to involve the community in understanding what the school district is providing. His opponent has chosen to condemn this position as just “spend, spend, spend,” and further has recalled and repeated over and over again words that Paul Funch says he never used.
I believe in Paul Funch’s honesty, ability, and educational program, and I do not believe the School Committee’s actions are immune from criticism –at least they weren’t many years ago when I was on the committee. Please join me in voting for Paul Funch on Tuesday, May 16.
