Erf Porter: Support Lauren Rabin for Board of Education

Letter to the editor from Erf Porter, Oct, 27, 2015

We can debate the issues and priorities and the qualifications of candidates for the Greenwich Board of Education (BOE).

But we should not debate that the best qualified candidates should be elected to the BOE and serve the best interests of our children and our community.  Education is the most important external factor impacting the lives of our children and their futures.

A BOE candidate, must therefore, demonstrate their competence and qualifications  and complement a composite set of BOE skills that exemplify  the excellence in education that Greenwich demands.

Lauren Rabin is such a candidate and I am proud to support her.  She understands and is committed to individual and life long learning.  A graduate  of the Greenwich School System, as are her children; a corporate trainer; and a consistent contributor to many volunteer and Town government Boards (RTM-Finance, Town Board of Social Services, PTA, GYFL, et al) resonate with competence, compassion, collaboration and common sense.  Join me in voting for Lauren Rabin.
