Hi All, I'm interested in speaking with candidates about increasing access to ECE for families of all economic backgrounds, providing more educational opportunities for early childhood educators, pay raises for educators.
I've emailed with candidates about childcare and also about access to higher education but not spoken directly in a face-to-face format. I've received mixed responses from candidates. Some respond, some have not.

To clarify: you need to submit your ballot by mail at least 1 week before the election! You need to request your ballot even before that. Call your town clerk to request one and ask any questions!

Sorry, I have to run to another zoom meeting. Thanks for everything today.
