LETTER: School Committee Member MJ Byrnes Deserves To Be Re-Elected, Earned My Vote

Dear Editor,

This letter is in support of Ms. MJ Byrnes and all her hard work and dedication as a member of the Wilmington School Committee. I truly appreciate MJ’s understanding of our students, their development, and their individual as well as their collective needs. MJ has dedicated her time to helping the educators in Wilmington develop the whole student and not just fill an empty student vessel with facts and figures. She has realized that students must feel safe, valued, and empowered in order to learn deeply. MJ has tackled the job of improving the overall advancement for what many see as our most vulnerable population, the middle school students, head on by considering programs and strategies to develop coping strategies and social skills that will allow our young people to become competent adults. MJ has always listened carefully to all people in the district, regardless of their affiliation, and measured their intention and impact for not only the school community but the town as well. Her advocacy for us all is invaluable and not only will I be supporting her in her quest for a seat on the School Committee again but I strongly recommend others to do the same by voting on April 24, 2021.


Wanda McLaren,

Teacher for 33 years Somerville Public Schools and Wilmington resident
