Letter: In the best interest of the schools
As a Bennington taxpayer and dad of three students who currently attend MAU schools, it is obviously in my best interest to have the best schools that we can provide. I am keenly aware of the positive image of Bennington that we want to share with others who visit or are deciding if they want to become members of our community. I want Bennington to take charge of the changes that Act 46 mandates and believe this plan will do so. I respectfully disagree with those who dare the state to come to Bennington and force change on our community. I am greatly encouraged by recent developments in our community especially the downtown area. I support the proactive approach proposed by our Act 46 committee as another step in our community's effort to restore civic pride and encourage growth.
