Letters: Support for BOE candidate Illyssa Green

Our nation, state, community, and schools face some tough economic times ahead. I can't think of a person with a better heart and passion for helping others than Illyssa Green to work diligently for our kids as a member of the Skaneateles School Board! I ask the members of our wonderful community to consider voting for Illyssa.


To the editor:

I originally met Illyssa Green as the mother of Thane Green who joined the wrestling program ten years ago. Since then, I have seen how dedicated she is to the overall educational program of the children in the Skaneateles Central School System. Illyssa understands that the most important objective of a school is to provide an excellent educational experience for all children. Students will perform much better academically when they also have top notch extra curricular activities such as music, plays, academic oriented clubs, art, and athletics. She understands that young people will be much more enthusiastic about their years in school when they have access to a well-rounded, positive experience.

As a coach and former longtime teacher at Skaneateles, I want our school to continue it's outstanding tradition of excellence. I am proud to ask voters to elect Illyssa Green to the Board of Education on May 17. She is one who can be creative in keeping our taxes in check, while preserving the treasure that we currently have in the Skaneateles Central School System.


A mothers Day tribute

To the editor,

In remembering my own mother, who will be 90 this year and my late wife Stephanie, I wanted to share with you some of my Mother's Day observations:

Mothers work, many of them work today outside of the home (as if that weren't enough). They prepare meals, do laundry and school work with their kids. They go to their children's' practices, they tend wounds and provide comfort, both physically and mentally.
