GREENWICH, Conn. This letter is from Greenwich resident Kim Augustine in support of Board of Education candidate Anna Saras Povinelli:
I am writing to endorse Board of Education candidate Anna Saras Povinelli. I have known Anna and her family for 10 years. Over that time, I have come to know Anna as an extremely intelligent, capable, dedicated friend and mother. I believe that she possesses every essential characteristic that would qualify her to be an excellent member of the Board of Education.
It is hard to find someone who has more of a vested interest in our educational system. She has four children in the Greenwich public schools. Her children and their education are her No. 1 priority. She is in the trenches and involved first-hand with what goes on at their schools at every level. Her in-depth knowledge and understanding of the system is beyond compare.
I have also had the privilege of working on a board with Anna for three years. She was an integral part of the team. While never afraid to share her insight and thoughtful analyses, she always listened and took into account everyones perspective. Anna is a team player, always striving to reach the best decision together. Anna is an extremely smart person who will not rush to judgment. She is a thorough investigator and researches everything to ensure she has the facts before making conclusions.
Refreshingly, Anna is not afraid to take a stand on a matter she believes in. She has the strength and confidence to hold her ground. Simultaneously, I appreciate her willingness to see all sides in a discussion. Lastly, she has the energy to never settle. She will always strive to achieve what is best for the children. She gives everything she does 1,000 percent. She has a heart of gold and she wants every child in Greenwich public schools to have the chance to get an education that is every bit what it should be and then some.
She is an advocate for every child in the Greenwich public schools, she is no nonsense, she is accountable to every parent and taxpayer in Greenwich. I urge you to vote for Anna Saras Povinelli for Board of Education.
