The Roundup sent questionnaires to every candidate in Bristol and Burlington for this year’s municipal election. In an effort to properly inform voters, their answers are unedited. The goal is to give the candidates the opportunity to offer their thoughts on issues directly to their constitutes. In return, it gives voters the opportunity to formulate their own decisions on what they have to say.
Next up is Jennifer Parsons Candidate for Region 10 Board of Education.
What are your most pressing issues?
Looking out for the future of our children and ensuring an environment that prepares them to be competitive in the college and career arena and will allow them to become productive adult citizens in our community while being budget conscious and thinking of new ways to do business with increasingly less funds
How do your thoughts and ideas differ from your opponent(s)?
I bring a great deal of personal and professional experience to this role. I have been an educator for 16 years and my first years of teaching in Burlington encouraged me to buy a house here and settle down in a small town I fell in love with. My husband and I now have three children in district who will be attending the Region 10 schools for the next 14 years.
