minuteman letter to the editor, january 5, 2017

We believe Kate Colburn will bring multiple perspectives and broad experience to the school committee when addressing the complicated decisions and tradeoffs necessary to achieve results that are consistent with Lexington’s short and long-term goals. Her tenure in Lexington Town Meeting, coupled with her role as the Appropriations Committee liaison to the School Committee, provides her with unique insight into balancing educational and municipal priorities. Currently, a working parent and a part-time consultant, she works with small towns facing similar capital improvement and school master planning challenges.

Kate has been involved in a number of town volunteer activities since moving to Lexington. She has served on several PTA boards and founded the Lexington Parents Advocacy Group to research and provide, pragmatic options to address school overcrowding.

Kate has been described as thoughtful, practical and collaborative, and is known for her innovative approach to problem solving. We agree and hope that you will too. For more about Kate, check out her website, ColburnforLexington.com , attend a neighbor’s coffee, or one of the many candidate’s night that will be scheduled in the coming two months.
