Letter to the Editor
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
It is with great enthusiasm that we encourage you to cast your vote alongside ours in support of Sue Bratone Childs as she seeks to become a member of the Pelham Board of Education.
As lifelong Pelham residents ourselves, we have known Sue for years -- as friends, neighbors, and even PMHS classmates. Sue and her husband, Nick, have raised their family here. Her son Spike is a freshman at PMHS and Oliva is a recent graduate who is now a college freshman. As many of you already know, Sue has devoted herself to helping make Pelham the special place that it is by giving back to the community. Whether it is working on the boards of the Pelham Art Center, the Junior League of Pelham, Friends of Pelham Sports, Pelham Rec. Soccer or County Harvest, Sue brings tireless energy, strong leadership skills, and a sense of civic responsibility to all she does.
Given her history in Pelham, we know Sue will bring a well-informed perspective to the School Board. She also has deep financial acumen from her career experience as well as close to a decade of educational knowledge as a member of the Board of Trustees of the Bank Street College of Education. We hope you have a chance to talk to Sue prior to the election. After one conversation, you will know she is a good listener. She values the opinions of others, seeks to understand all sides of an issue, and is respectful of differing viewpoints. She recognizes the importance of continually strengthening and supporting our school system while being fiscally responsible.
Your vote is important. Please join us and cast your vote for Sue Bratone Childs for Pelham Board of Education on Tuesday, May 16th.
Katie and John Stevens
