Support for Erickson is close to home

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

I am 19 years old and I plan on voting in the upcoming election on Nov. 5 by absentee ballot.

My parents have brought me up to honor the sacrifice of those who have fought for the rights and privileges of living in a free society. This year I will be exercising those rights and privileges to cast one of my four votes for the Board of Education for my mom, Laura Erickson.

My sister, father and I attended the DTC convention this summer to support my mom. I thought she knocked the cover off the ball. She didn’t get the party’s nomination but my parents are always telling us to “persevere” so I wasn’t at all surprised when she followed through and got herself on the ballot.

For as long as I can remember, my mother has been involved with the schools, town government and the Greenwich Alliance for Education. I think my mom would bring a lot to the Board of Education.

Now that I am in college, I have a different perspective. I appreciate all that my teachers, mentors, and school administrators did to prepare me for life beyond high school. Thank you, Greenwich public schools.

I hope I’ve convinced you, but if you need more information, go to her website, Ericksonforeducation.com.
