I want to thank each of you for coming out in support our children on Election Day.
I knew when I decided to run for the Board of Education that the odds were going to be
stacked against me. None-the-less, I believe that the campaign process provided
the opportunity to be heard.
If I were to share my disappointment with you, it would be that I was overlooked
by too many people. Not that these people overlooked me personally, but
they overlooked the important information I was trying to communicate.
This morning, the word I'm going to share with you is RESOLVE. I view this as
a blessing in disguise. I have not ruled out running again and I will
make that decision with you. In the meantime, I now have the opportunity
to take our concern for the children and the ruination of our public education
system to more people. There are more people to reach in our town and
abroad. There are more parents who need to understand what Common Core
and SEED mean to the district. There are teachers who need to know that
they are not our adversaries. We have those who were elected to hold
accountable, not just in our homes and among friends,
There are 570 votes worth of people, along with those who do not reside in North
Haven, that I'm asking to join this mission. I have resolve that there is
much to continue forward with and that we must not lose momentum. I'm going to
ask you to please continue to work with me, to help me if you can, and certainly to share the information with as many as you can./p>
In the near future, I will share with you some initiatives that we are working on.
I will continue NickforNorthHaven.com as the place for things North Haven
related. There will likely be some new web resources coming online and you will
be invited to contribute, if you like.
Until my next communication, I would like to leave you with the following quote:
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. - Ronald Regan
As parents and tax-payers, our task is clear...
