Instead of a conventional endorsements list, here are what prominent Newton residents are saying about the campaign.
“Cyrus is a terrific neighbor and will be a great additional on the School Committee.” – Laurie and George Bower (Former English Teacher, Newton North High School), Newtonville.
“Fortunately, Mr. Vaghar is again challenging (the incumbent) for SC and is again giving this issue (drugs in the schools), the attention it deserves.” – Jane Hanser, Newton Center.
“Young Cyrus will be the perfect compliment to the School Committee, representing a constituency that is almost invisible– students! We need fresh, new blood on the Committee and Cyrus is perfect for the job! Please vote for him!” – Jack Porter, Ph.D., (The Davis Center, Harvard University), Newtonville.
