LETTER: Karen Hirsh Will Focus on the Academic Experience for All Students

Letter to the editor from Alan Gunzburg, Cos Cob

I am writing in support of Karen Hirsh who is running for a seat on the Board of Education. I have known Karen for the past eight years.

I know she has high integrity. She is a dedicated and tireless advocate for all of school age children in Greenwich.

Karen has an extensive background in our schools from positions she has successfully filled on her local school PTA in Glenville, to just recently finishing a term as a President of the PTA Council.

Karen is a great advocate for children with different needs. She shows empathy, knowledge, and skill all important qualities that I would like to see in somebody who supports our public schools.

I know she will be focused on the academic experience for all students, along with their social-emotional growth, physical safety, well-being and mental health. She is the right candidate to strengthen communication with all town stakeholders and will be a change agent for the physical improvements our school buildings are badly in need of.

Join me on election day and vote for Karen Hirsh.

Alan Gunzburg, Cos Cob
