I am writing in support Valorie Hollister as a candidate for the Granby Board of Education. Through regular attendance at Board of Education and Board of Finance meetings, Valorie has prepared herself thoroughly for this role. She is well-informed about current education issues and the annual budget process. Val fully embraces timely and open communication to taxpayers in order to engage them and incorporate their input into the Board's decision-making process. At the core of Valorie's philosophy is her belief in cross-cultural competence; that our schools must prepare students to live in a world where our "neighbors" may live thousands of miles away. I am confident that Valorie's preparation and philosophies will allow her to serve the students and families of Granby with the utmost competence, and I wholeheartedly endorse her candidacy for the Board of Education. Vote Hollister on November 5th!
Respectfully submitted, Laura Fetridge
