To the Editor:

I am writing to express my immense concern about the continuing influence of political agendas within the West Hartford School Board. It is embarrassing to see that some members (both Democrat and Rebublican) of the board seem to prioritize their political careers over the well-being and education of our students. Political favors seem to supersede the wellness of the community (i.e., the Latoya Fernandez appointment).

The primary role of a school board should be to provide the best possible education and safety for our children. This means creating an environment where students can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. However, when political ideologies and personal ambitions take center stage, the purpose of the elected board is compromised.

Policies should be developed and communicated with the West Hartford community with the sole aim of benefiting the students and enhancing their educational experience. When political considerations and personal interests are allowed to influence policy decisions, it undermines the integrity of the school board and has an extremely negative impact on the quality of education our students receive.

Elections are coming up Nov. 7. Every vote counts! It is imperative that we, as a community, elect school board members that choose to serve the interests of the West Hartford school system. We need leaders who are dedicated to creating an inclusive, supportive, and effective educational system, rather than those who use the board as a steppingstone for personal gain.

Therefore, I highly suggest voting for the person, not for the party!

A Connecticut Party (ACP) is dedicated to meeting in the middle, as indicated by the three people running:

  • Roni Rodman for Board of Education (Independent)
  • Kristin Rosen Jacobs for Board of Education (Democrat)
  • Rick Bush for Town Council (Republican)

Vote for a candidate who you think will do the best job, and not for a candidate who is looking to get another job!

Roni Rodman
