Dear Residents of Westfield,  

My husband, myself and our twins have been residents of Westfield since 2008. I am running for the Board of Education on the Bright Futures platform with David Sexton and Wendy Rogers on column three of the ballot.

I chose David and Wendy as my running mates because they are people of character. I am running because I believe in our school system and the people that make our children’s education possible.

Our newsletter delivers the local news that you can trust.

The role of the board member is to be supportive and help pave the road to a great education. My goals for the Board of Education are as follows: I will be supportive of programs that give girls a voice where female voices are not traditionally heard. I want the school to continue to be sensitive and aware of students who are struggling academically, socially or psychologically and to be able to be proactive. I will work with the board and support programs that further tolerance and empathy. I will be committed to transparency in government. I will support all students.

We are in the midst of impossible times right now. In a normal school year, the board has a full schedule addressing educational, social and financial concerns. Now we have health concerns. As a physician, I am ready to take on these new challenges and look forward to helping our children gain an education while navigating through this pandemic. I truly believe that they will have “Bright Futures”. 

Sincerely,

Deborah Feldman-Kahn
