Letters to the Editor: May 15, 2015


On May 20, vote for the “new” guy, Ken Maurer, and just say no to incumbent Pauline Stone.




Experience, insight

TO THE EDITOR: Please consider my candidacy for Peru School Board in the election on May 20.

The election will be held at the Junior/Senior High School from noon to 9 p.m., and my name, Genie Denton, will appear first on the ballot.

(Please note the evening is action packed, with the Peru Elementary School Apple Crate showcasing their spring sounds at 7 p.m. in the High School auditorium, an event you will probably not want to miss.)

I have the added experience of having served on the board after filing a vacancy that arose earlier this school year. In the seven months I have been on the board, I have garnered insight as to what it truly means to be a board member.

Now, with your help, I hope to continue to serve all of the children, families, school personnel and other community stakeholders.

There is much I would love to tell you about why I want to serve and to share my qualifications; however, the 300-word limit for a letter approaches quickly.

Please take time to review my experience and genuine interest, along with other pertinent election propositions, on the Peru School District website at

Find out how you can play a bigger role in shaping the school’s future by participating in the Vision 2020 planning process found at

Thank you for your anticipated support.




Advocating for students

TO THE EDITOR: I am seeking another term on Plattsburgh School Board.

From the late 1970s to the present, I have been honored to serve alongside many fellow board members working together to provide a quality educational experience to thousands of Plattsburgh’s children.
