Dear Clarendon Residents,

On May 18, there will be a special election for a seat on the Mill River School Board.  My experience demonstrates that I will be able to contribute the leadership needed to help the school district move forward.

My background in Communication supports an understanding of the barriers that occur between people with different interests, viewpoints and interaction styles. I believe I can be a positive force on the board.

As a Parent, I experienced being part of the Mill River community through my children’s participation in sports, music, theater and service clubs. Their academic program enabled them to be successful in their post secondary education and in their chosen fields. I hope to support all students to be successful.

As a former Educator, I understand the challenges teachers and administrators face in providing a quality education for all children.

As a local Municipal Board Member, I understand the complexities of state laws that impact local decisions. As a former chair of two boards, I am knowledgeable about open meeting laws and Robert’s Rules of Order. I am a strong advocate for transparency in the work of the School Board.

As an Administrator I understand how to develop budgets to prioritize the needs of schools while acknowledging the impact on taxpayers.

I will represent the people of Clarendon by communicating appropriately, respectfully and honestly with board members, administrators, community members and parents.

Thank you for your consideration and remember to vote on or before May 18th.

Carol Geery

Clarendon, Vermont
