To the Editor:
On April 12, we were pleased to join Mayor Rob Dolan, Superintendent Joe Casey, the Melrose School Committee and members of the community at the contract signing ceremony for incoming Superintendent Cyndy Taymore.
With the selection of Ms. Taymore to lead the Melrose Public Schools, the City begins another exciting chapter in our collective effort to build an excellent, innovative school system that supports and challenges all students. We welcome Ms. Taymore to Melrose, and we look forward to working with her, Mayor Dolan and the community to support our schools and address the challenges we face.
We thank the members of the superintendent search committee and the School Committee for their many hours of work and their dedication to a comprehensive, timely and open process. Our school principals, teachers and many members of the public contributed to the selection process as well, and we all benefited from their input.
Finally, we would like to thank Superintendent Casey for his leadership and many years of service to so many students here in Melrose and across the Commonwealth. We wish him all the best in retirement.
Sen. Katherine Clark, D-Melrose
Rep. Paul Brodeur, D-Melrose
