To The Editor:
On Saturday, April 2nd, the voting residents of Tewksbury have several choices to vote for two open seats on Tewksbury’s School Committee. My clear choice for one of my two votes is for Erin Knyff. There is an immediate need on the School Committee for a fresh voice and a new motivated perspective. With the coming of a new superintendent, this is a perfect time to add a new member to our School Committee that exemplifies credibility and trust.
Erin is the proud mother of three children and I have had the pleasure of getting to know Erin and her family over the past several years. I currently work with Erin on the Public Events and Celebrations Committee which has done remarkable work sponsoring the annual Fall Harvest Festival and the Christmas Tree Lighting and Holiday Celebration. Her dedication and organizational skills have helped make this committee a shining success for Tewksbury’s families to enjoy.
As many of you may already know, Erin is the founder of Liam Nation. Liam Nation strives to improve the lives of people with physical and cognitive challenges by providing funding and support to remove the obstacles that affect their daily lives. Through Liam Nation, Erin has sponsored numerous fundraisers, which have raised thousands of dollars towards this crucial cause. I personally admire Erin for her heartfelt and dedicated devotion.
I have 100% confidence that Erin Knyff is the right choice for this extremely important position on our School Committee and the timing is perfect to elect Erin as a strong voice and advocate for all parents and children of Tewksbury to improve our school system and the quality of education.
Again, please join me in voting for Erin Knyff on Saturday, April 2nd. The polls are open from 8:00 AM until 8:00 PM.
