Kelly Morgan for school board

To the editor:

I’m writing to express my support for Kelly Morgan as a Saranac Lake school board candidate.

There are numerous reasons that Kelly would make an excellent addition to the Board of Education. She’s a lifelong resident of Saranac Lake, an active member of the community who has been involved in volunteer activities, including Women’s Civic Chamber and North Star Behavioral Health Service’s mentor program. Kelly spearheaded the free Thanksgiving dinner at the Adult Center that has been offered to the community for the last four years. A member of a large family, she is a mother, grandmother, aunt, sister and role model to many.

While these are all great reasons, they are not the primary reason I am encouraging you too to consider supporting Kelly. What I admire and respect most about Kelly is her integrity. Kelly has a solid moral compass. She is someone who lives by the Golden Rule. She doesn’t speak or act to gain anyone’s favor or approval. She lives according to her values of kindness, responsibility, honesty and generosity. As a board member, I am confident that Kelly will listen with an open mind, consider the weighty decisions to be made thoughtfully and carefully, and act according to the best interests of the entire community of Saranac Lake.
