WILMINGTON, MA — Town Moderator Robert Peterson Jr. recently interviewed Wilmington School Committee candidate Steve Bjork as part of WCTV’s 2017 Candidate Conversations series.
Bjork grew up in Wilmington (WHS Class of 1986) and feels fortunate to be able to raise his family here in town.
Bjork has served on the board of directors for the Wilmington Rotary Club, Friends of the Wilmington Library, and Wilmington Family Counseling.
“I have great love for this community,” said Bjork. “I spend a lot of time trying to give back to the town that’s been very good to me and my family,”
Bjork was elected to the Wilmington School Committee three years ago when he was “looking to help a solid school system continue to improve.”
“My reason for seeking re-election is, quite frankly, a signed up to do a job, and there’s still quite a bit left to do,” said Bjork, who is focused on finding the right superintendent candidate to lead the district.
Bjork also believes attention needs to be given to the district’s special education department, the Middle School, and finding permanent principals for the schools that have interim leaders.
Bjork cites hiring and supervising the Superintendent, plus policy development, as the school committee’s primary roles.
Bjork intends on utilizing lawn signs once the snow melts.
