Letter to the Editor: Burlington Resident Mike Kelly Write-In Campaign for Shawsheen School Committee

The following is a Letter to the Editor: 


Dear neighbor,


I'm excited to announce my candidacy for the Shawsheen Valley Technical School District Committee to represent Burlington.


Burlington deserves two member representation on the committee during this critical juncture in education. My focus is to be a voice for residents and students from Burlington who attend Shawsheen. I'll bring an insider's perspective with me to the role as a graduate of Shawsheen's class of 2005.


My focus will be the continued pursuit in providing a world class education while fostering an environment that is caring to the needs of the students and staff throughout this tumultuous time.


Covid has put great burden on students and staff. It's placed a logistical burden on schools from the potential format of scheduling classes this Fall to maintaining social distancing with school transportation. I'm also aware of the burden of the strain this pandemic has put on all children including those on IEPs with regard to the social and emotional aspects of learning. The safety and well being of students is my foremost concern as we look towards returning to a semblance of normalcy.


You're always welcome to reach out with questions at 781-491-3221 or mikekelly920@yahoo.com.


I humbly ask for your write-in vote at the Burlington town election on Saturday, June 6th.


Thank you.


Mike Kelly
