Giunta, Reardon vie for Ward 5 council seat

(Continued)

What can be done to improve the schools?: Reardon says he comes from a family of teachers, and that list includes his father, Neil Reardon, a popular teacher and coach in the city’s school system for more than three decades.

Reardon said, “I attended and worked in the Newburyport public schools and I am a very proud Clipper. Education is my passion. As an educational sales representative, it is my job to work with local school districts to meet their educational goals.”

“We as a community have to invest more of the city budget into our schools,” he said. “I want to see the foreign language curriculum brought back in our middle and elementary schools. I would also like to see more AP offerings at the high school. We have a new superintendent. Let’s give her the resources she needs to meet her academic goals.”

What will be your special interest if you a city councilor?: “I will be a strong advocate for our parks and schools. Ward 5 specifically, I would like to see Hale Street have a sidewalk so it can truly be connected with Low Street. I want to see the complete capping of the Crow Lane landfill. I would also like to see the Newburyport High stadium get restored. Finally, I would hold monthly office hours if elected.”
