Saco School Board Candidate
My name is Erica Tracy and I am running for a position on the Saco School Board for ward 2. It has been a long time goal of mine to serve our community in such a capacity.
I’ve been a resident of Saco for 6 years. I have a strong passion for education and I’m a full time kindergarten teacher in Berwick, Maine. I am a step mom of two children who attend Saco Middle School and C.K. Burns. I have seen firsthand the positive results from the hard work and dedication on behalf of our educators, administrators and students. I have always respected the uniqueness of the educational system and the challenges to meet the needs of all stakeholders, while being fiscally responsible.
After the listening and learning forum with Superintendent DePatsy, I realized a position on our School Board was open. I really support the vision our district is taking and would love to be a part of that adventure!
I would enjoy the opportunity to serve and would take the responsibility seriously. As a member, I would listen to and investigate all information available on an issue before I form an opinion and cast my vote. I understand taxes are on the higher end in our town and would make sure Saco tax payers know their tax dollars are well spent and accounted for in the schools.
I believe educating our children is our most precious asset. The world they will grow up in will most certainly be challenging. It is our job to give them a solid educational base, fostering the very best in all of them and contributing to their continued success in our town, state, country and world. I ask that you cast your vote for me as a write in candidate, Erica Tracy for Saco School Board Ward 2 on November 3, 2015. I am excited for the opportunity to serve my community.
