Vote St. Lawrence


I am writing in support of Crystal St. Lawrence for Board of Education. I have had the privilege to serve with Crystal on the BOE for the past two years.

As a parent of two at Plainville High School, Crystal has her finger on the pulse of community schools. I have witnessed her commitment, her motivation, her calm and kind way of dealing with challenges.

Crystal takes her role as a BOE member seriously. She shows care and concern for all students, faculty and staff.

Get out and vote on Nov. 5 and vote for Crystal St. Lawrence.

Martinez for BOE

To the editor:

I am writing in support of Rebecca Martinez for Board of Education. I met Rebecca in 2017 during the Wheeler school renovation, and her level of dedication to the town, understanding of issues and charisma impressed me.

Rebecca’s involvement with many town groups demonstrates her commitment to Plainville. These include PTO, Rotary Club, family festival committee, balloon festival, Plainville Positive Youth Coalition and 150th celebration, just to name a few.

Rebecca always has the betterment of the next generation in mind. She will be a great addition to the Board of Education.

Worthyof re-election


I have known Crystal St. Lawrence for over 10 years, both personally, and as a volunteer in various organizations. I wholeheartedly support her for a second term on the Board of Education.

I have witnessed Crystal in action helping the students of Plainville in many ways.

In her first term on the board, she spent many hours and long nights working hard at meetings and on projects.

I know she will continue with the same enthusiasm – even more, if that is possible – if she is voted to continue to serve.

I hope residents vote for Crystal St. Lawrence. She has done a terrific job.
