I am writing this blog entry to endorse Caroline Colarusso for the Stoneham School Committee. Caroline and I first met when she was appointed to the finance board about three years ago. She was friendly and affable, immediately becoming involved in the more complex issues the board faces. She has the intelligence, education and experience to get the job done. In particular, she has focused on serving the best interests of our school aged population. Our children and their education are her primary concern. Honesty and integrity are her hallmarks as shown by her successful tenure on the Finance and Advisory Board, charity work and involvement in after school activities. Her unassuming persona is uncharacteristic of politicians generally. Caroline always focuses on financial issues, particularly ensuring the most effective use of our scarce resources, which is sorely needed on the school committee. Overall, Caroline is clearly the best choice for providing the oversight our school system requires in these difficult economic times.
Yet another important dimension of Caroline's volunteer efforts is her devotion to family which forms the basis for the self-sacrificing attention she pays to the needs of Stoneham residents and beyond. While our school children are the focus of her efforts, the parents are a close second as she understands the critical bond between parent and child and its' importance to our children's education and overall development. In support of these interests Caroline also brings extensive
management expertise, a solid understanding of Stoneham's education environment as well as the sensitivity only a mother of three can bring to the difficult issues that the Stoneham Schools confront on a daily basis.
You can be sure that with Caroline on the Stoneham School Committee your children and their education are first on her priority list. I strongly support Caroline in her candidacy for Stoneham School Committee. I encourage you to vote for Caroline to ensure that we have an effective and safe school system for our children.
