LETTER: Stowe has worked tirelessly to improve, advance and support our public schools

Submitted by Meredith S. Curreri, Greenwich

I am writing to enthusiastically endorse Kathleen Stowe for the Greenwich Board of Education.

I have known Kathleen for almost ten years and as a fellow parent and friend I can attest that she is smart, warm and inclusive. She has always been quick to volunteer her time for her kids and the community, which is highlighted by her work on the Greenwich Board of Education.

As a current BOE member and a resident, she has worked tirelessly to improve, advance and support our public schools. She brings a history of financial acumen and deep understanding of balancing budgets to support her chairing the BOE finance committee. Under her stewardship on the financial committee (and on the BOE as a whole), Kathleen has provided unmatched guidance for our complex and multifaceted needs as a large public school system.

As a fellow working mother, not only am I impressed with her ability to multi-task, but forever thankful that, as part of her role on the BOE, our schools were open for all of last year during this unprecedented pandemic. Kathleen is approachable and affable and, most importantly she has common sense to steer the BOE through these tumultuous times for the benefit of all of our children.

Her love for this town and desire to bring out its best, along with her deep experience in both the private and public sector, further combined with her engagement and warmth (and we shouldn’t forget her humor!) makes Kathleen Stowe a great choice for re-election to the Greenwich Board of Education.

I would be remiss if I didn’t also add that, as a school parent engaged with our PTAs, for the BOE to be truly successful in the coming years, please also vote for all 6 Democrats on the BET so we can truly have town support to move our schools forward!
