It’s that time for me. I have decided not to run for another term on the city council.
When I was elected six years ago, I had anticipated only serving two terms.
So before I do a post mortem of my time on the city council, it is important for me to tell you that I have been humbled by the trust you have placed in me and that it has been a privilege to represent you.
What follows are some of my thoughts on the city council and the city.
First in the Nation effort will provide digital access to Financial Literacy Tools
FRANKLIN, NH (AUGUST 13, 2019) – Franklin Savings Bank has joined a collaborative effort spearheaded by the National Collaborative for Digital Equity to assist low- to moderate-income communities with obtaining access to both digital broadband services and educational resources for students. Other members of the alliance include Sage Sustainable Electronics, Rosen Digital, and EBSCO Information Services. Initially, this venture will provide two computers and 25 subscriptions to financial literacy programs to Franklin High School, the first known use of a bank’s Community Reinvestment Act funding nationwide to support the refurbishment and donation of computers.
Developing our region’s child educator workforce development
CONCORD - The National Association for the Education of Young Children’s (NAEYC) Commission on the Accreditation of Early Childhood Higher Education Programs announced that NHTI was granted first-time accreditation of its Associate of Science Degree in Early Childhood Education. To earn and retain accreditation, programs must demonstrate a number of rigorous standards including curriculum development and field experiences for students. Diana Menard, Department Chair of Child and Family Studies shares that “achieving this accreditation helps demonstrate our important work in developing strong students to enter the Early Childhood field, which in turn supports working families and provides stability to employers around the state.”
