To the Editor,
We are writing in support of Kathi Snook for one of the two open seats for School Committee. Kathi is running because she believes in education, our town and our kids, and she is committed to serving the town of Concord honorably and with integrity. She has no agenda other than ensuring the best possible learning experience for each Concord child.
Kathi is an excellent listener, communicator and consensus builder with an impressive background in education and leadership. After graduating from West Point, she rose to the rank of Army Colonel and then returned as a professor to teach mathematics. She also has earned a doctoral degree in curriculum and teaching, and has served on several committees for faculty and curriculum development.
Our sons grew up together as friends and teammates. We have worked along side Kathi in the classroom, on the field and at church. We’ve seen first-hand Kathi’s ability to take on challenges and devise successful action plans. She has the ability to organize groups, maintain focus on objectives and leverage the talents of the group to accomplish the tasks at hand. She is analytical and makes thoughtful, well-considered decisions. She is also eager to learn and listen to the thoughts and ideas of others.
Kathi will make a terrific addition to the Concord School Committee. Her skill set is an ideal fit for the committee and her commitment and dedication to the town will assure the best possible representation for the townspeople. We sincerely hope you will join us in voting for Kathi Snook on Tuesday, March 19.
Anne and Peter Standish
