No hidden agenda

TO THE EDITOR: I am supporting Andrew Brockway for a seat on the Beekmantown School Board on May 21.

Andrew is a hard-working person who is committed to working on the issues facing the district. He understands the need to plan for our future and that we must find a superintendent who will squeeze the budget so that we can get the most for our money.

Brockway will be a collaborator and doesn’t have a hidden agenda, nor does he have any relatives employed by the school. There is no conflict of interest that will cloud his judgment.

Andrew is a Beekmantown grad and wants to improve his alma mater without cutting jobs or increasing class sizes.

Please vote for Andrew Brockway for BCS Board on May 21.

Support for Hagadorn

TO THE EDITOR: I am writing this letter on behalf of Michael Hagadorn, who is running for a seat on the Beekmantown School Board.

I have had the pleasure to know Michael Hagadorn for several years. Michael is an amazing ER physician’s assistant at CVPH and has treated my kids and myself several times while visiting the ER.

Along with him being a physician’s assistant, he is also an amazing father. I have had the pleasure to coach his children at the City Munchin Soccer program.

Michael knows how important sports, exercise and extracurricular activities are for kids to participate in. Physical activity is an essential component for kids to learn about good health and how it contributes to a healthy lifestyle.

Michael supports these activities that also contribute to a more successful school program, where students are able to reach their goals.

Michael has the students’ best interest at heart and will be a great asset to the School Board at Beekmantown. His children, like mine, attend Cumberland Head Elementary School.
