I am writing to express my support for Eleni Richardson, the at-large candidate for the South Portland School Board. She and I first met in June of 2020, during one of the most challenging times in recent history – the height of the pandemic. My family and I had recently relocated to South Portland from Bangor, and I felt the weight of navigating a new community during such uncertain times. But then I met Richardson. Our children attended the same preschool and formed an inseparable bond. She immediately reached out to introduce herself and welcomed us to the community. She fosters inclusivity. Her innate ability to engage all community members in meaningful dialogue and decision-making processes is admirable and essential for the success of our schools and kids. A vote for Richardson is for fresh perspectives, dedication and a genuine commitment to our children’s future.
