Support urged for Purvis for Souhegan School Board

To the Editor:

We are writing to encourage the voters in Amherst to place their support behind candidate Dwayne Purvis in the upcoming Souhegan School Board election.

With multiple children spanning many grade levels in the Amherst and Souhegan districts Dwayne has a vested interest in maximizing the school’s potential. Indeed, as a citizen he has been attending meetings for years, listening carefully and offering insightful comments that helped to productively shape discussion.

As a member of the Souhegan budget advisory committee, Dwayne worked collaboratively with the board and the other members of the committee while at the same time asking challenging questions aimed at structuring a responsible budget that sought excellence in education and breadth of opportunity for its students.

Dwayne will serve the voters well by facilitating a cost-effective focus in the school board budgetary process. He will ask probing questions while simultaneously exercising his innate ability to acutely listen to those around him.

Dwayne Purvis represents the best of how concerned citizens and parents can contribute to the growth of our community.
