Letter to the editor: Supports Neth-Kunin for school board


I am writing this letter in support of Dorothy Neth-Kunin for Board of Education for the Naugatuck School System.

Dorothy has the educational background to be an asset to the Board of Education and the school system. She not only has a B.S. in Finance and a Masters Degree in Business Management but she has also worked in the insurance industry for 25 years in the financial development of group health plans and also in identifying the variances within the benefits of the managed care arena. Both of these are areas that the current Board of Education has struggled with in the past.

Not only will Dorothy bring a business mind to her position on the BOE, she brings a genuine compassion and care for the children that the BOE is tasked with representing. Dorothy has been a friend and a mentor to my son for many years, bringing guidance and advice when warranted and genuine friendship when needed.

As a member of the Board of Education her basic tenants will be to remain mindful that the future is in the children that we are raising, their success is a reflection of the education they receive and to help create a budget that is proactive, rather than a reactive approach to the education of our children.

Please join me in supporting Dorothy Neth-Kunin for Board of Education.
