It has come to my attention that there were two errors in my recent post about diversity on Town Commissions and Boards. The Library Board member who wasn’t reappointed is a teacher, but not in the Stratford system. Also I mistakenly thought she was a person of color.
These two items do not change my point about the need for improved diversity on our local governing bodies and the need for fresh faces and perspectives. We fail the community by consistently recycling the same faces in these important positions.
