Jesse Fennelly

I want to thank the Wilmington Apple for another season of excellent election coverage and for giving us the opportunity to discuss our positions on issues facing the town. I also want to extend my appreciation to you, the residents of Wilmington, for taking the time to learn about the candidates on the ballot this coming weekend. You have three choices for three seats on the School Committee this year. I hope I have done enough to earn one of your votes. I am looking forward to (hopefully) being given a chance to represent you. And remember, you can always reach me on the campaign Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/JesseFennellyforWilmingtonSchoolCommittee

Also, please don’t forget that while the School Committee race is quiet this year, we have 9 candidates for three seats on the Board of Selectmen. I hope the residents will share my sentiment that this is an important election, and I encourage everyone to get out this weekend and vote. Please, while you are at it, consider casting a vote for me for School Committee. Thank you.

Jay Samaha

Wilmington is a great town with great schools and is a place we should all be proud to call home. I am excited about the challenges ahead and, if elected, will always work for the students, families, and community of Wilmington to the best of my ability.  I believe that my combination of being both a parent in town and being a classroom teacher will bring a unique perspective to the school committee. I look forward to helping stabilize the district at all levels, increasing social emotional learning, focusing on special education, and finding appropriate solutions to issues in a collaborative spirit with my fellow school committee members and the Superintendent.

I would like to thank my fellow candidates, Jo and Jesse.  I have learned a lot from both of you and, if elected, look forward to working alongside you.  I would also like to thank my wife, Amanda, our children, Avis and Nick, and the many friends, family, and colleagues who have helped along the way.

I am asking for your vote this Saturday, April 27th.
