Main Street resident Barbara O'Malley Cannon writes that Snook will bring 'strength of character, intelligence, and a strong work ethic to the school committee.'
To the Editor, I am writing to strongly endorse the candidacy of Kathi Snook for School Committee.

To the Editor, We feel like first-time callers to one of those talk radio shows, since in all our years in Concord we have never written a letter to the editor of the Concord Journal.
