What is the best political advice you have received?
I am not in politics, and therefore I am not exposed to political advice.
What Maine political figure do you admire most?
What has Mayor Robert Macdonald done during the past two years that you agree with? What has he done that you disagree with?
What has the city council done during the past two years that you agree with? What have they done that you disagree with?
Approve the school budget in a collaborative effort with the school committee. I have no disagreement with actions of city council over the past two years as my civic service is in the field of education, and I just don't have the opportunity to attend city council meetings and get involved in the extensive details of their decision making process.
What has the city administrator and the city staff done during the past two years that you agree with? What have they done that you disagree with?
What has the school committee done during the past two years that you agree with? What have they done that you disagree with?
There are many positive accomplishments over the past two years. The school board has been very focused on providing the best possible education for Lewiston's youth and has been very functional in its business.The school committee has also successfully negotiated contracts with both teachers and ed techs through an interest based bargaining process. This has provided well managed gains for both the school board and our educational professionals.
What should be done with Bates Mill No. 5?
Any last words?
It is my opinion that on a scale of one to ten (with ten being the highest), in terms of things in life that are important to contribute to, education is a ten. It should be every school board member's primary focus at all times.
