Active volunteer hopes to bring experience to Council

(Continued)

What can be done to improve the schools: Kinsey said, “The Port Pride campaign created such energy and optimism in the city. We had a unique opportunity, and we worked tirelessly to be sure everyone knew about it. We couldn’t let it slip by us.

“Now we have a talented new superintendent who we need to empower to steer the schools in the right direction and bring back stability in our school’s leadership. I am proud of the work we did as a Search Committee to find Susan Viccaro.

“Next, we need to continue to actively seek resources to bring our schools’ curriculum up to date. We must prioritize foreign languages and improved technology. And we have to look beyond property taxes to fund these needs.”

What would be a special interest for you if you are a city councilor: “I want to ratchet down the acrimony and discord over key issues like the future of the waterfront and the historical integrity of our city. I view these key questions about the future of our city as opportunities to be researched, considered, and then acted upon in the most beneficial fashion.

“By working together we can keep Newburyport a vibrant, dynamic city. I have a long record of working with varied groups of people and helping them find common ground on issues. I can do the same as a city councilor.
