Extraordinary Work

With so much bad news, it’s easy to forget that real change begins at school!

Sag Harbor School District residents will have received a vote-by-mail ballot for the School Board election. Sag Harbor has a great opportunity to elect Helen Roussel to its School Board.

I have known Helen and her children for many years. She is friendly, caring, and passionate and informed about education, the environment, and smart budgeting.

She has done extraordinary work advocating for more attention to identifying and remediating reading disorders (like dyslexia) early in public schools. This saves children years of misery and frustration. (And saves school taxes — so much easier to help young students, before “failure” becomes a pattern.)

She is an educated and active environmentalist, and will review district programs and buildings accordingly. This will benefit both schools and the village, practically and economically. And she will both model and advocate for green education at all levels. (Green jobs will be the biggest employment source in future decades.)
