To the Editor,
A rumor has been making its way around town about two School Committee candidates, Johanna Boynton and Kathi Snook. The rumor states that Superintendent Diana Rigby hand picked these two candidates, and that the three of them are good friends.
After speaking with the two candidates, and others who know them, I have learned that this rumor is false. Johanna and Kathi had not met before they both became candidates. Kathi Snook announced her candidacy in December and was introduced to Diana Rigby in January at a funeral of a mutual friend. Johanna has had a working relationship with Diana when she was the Alcott PTG President and on some other school related activities, but they are not friends outside of that capacity. Ms. Rigby did not ask either of them to run.
Johanna Boynton and Kathi Snook will make excellent School Committee members. They are thoughtful, direct, honest, ethical people who are committed to a positive, dynamic school system.
I encourage you to vote for them on March 19.
