Westfield engaged with its school


I am writing in regard to the Westfield Academy and Central School budget vote and board of education election.

What a turnout! The budget passed by a vote of 955 to 296. It’s impressive to note how many voters are interested and participated. It is also encouraging to observe the commitment to our school. There are sure to be challenges in reopening and the dedication of the community will certainly facilitate this process.

On a personal note, I would like to extend a hearty thank you for the support in my successful bid for a position on the Board of Education. Signs were placed, emails were sent, recommendations given, words of encouragement accepted, and votes submitted. I intend to listen, learn, and work hard to honor your trust.
