I am writing to ask you to support Berta Erickson on Tuesday, May 16, as she runs for election to the three-year seat on the Groton-Dunstable School Committee. Berta has been an active citizen in the town of Groton and has earned the respect of the people she serves. With grandchildren in the system, she truly cares about the education of our children while striking a balance with the fiscal difficulties of the community. Berta has been a strong advocate for bringing our textbooks up to date and is the chairman of the Naming Committee. She has been active in lobbying the state to increase educational funding. As Berta’s treasurer, I would like you to know that the committee to elect Berta Erickson is not seeking funds to support her campaign. I believe that Berta’s strong commitment to the town of Groton and our schools is just what we need. I hope you will join me on Tuesday and vote for Berta Erickson.
