Letter to the editor:

For the first time since 2014, we have a contested Board of Education race and the opportunity to choose the best people for the job. We must pay close attention to our town’s education system and vote to elect the right people to lead our schools. We are lucky to have a choice in candidates for Darien’s Board of Education. I am supporting Mike Burke and Sara Parent. Mike is a lawyer who has served on the Board for the past six years.

“Michael brings a wealth of experience and a steady hand, and Sara brings her experience as a highly involved parent and a former educator to the Board of Education,” DTC Chair David Bayne said. “At a time when the COVID-19 crisis is testing the very foundations of how education is being delivered to our children, Michael and Sara represent the kind of thoughtful and innovative leadership that is precisely what Darien needs in order to continue providing unsurpassed educational opportunities to all of our children,” Bayne said. “Together they represent the best that Darien has to offer and our town is particularly fortunate that they have chosen to run for the Board of Education during this unprecedented time.” Michael Burke is seeking his third term on the Board of Education and Sara Parent her first.
