Would you vote for Dale Magee for Shrewsbury School Board?
“I am running because I can bring a reasoned and balanced approach to help improve our schools and our community’s satisfaction with the system,” Magee said, in part, in announcing his candidacy.
Magee, a Shrewsbury physician, continued: “I bring the perspective of someone who places a high value on education but does not have a student in the system at this time. … Especially this year, balance is becoming harder to attain. Re-electing me will allow me to continue to benefit the community with my perspective and the experience that I have gained over the past three years.”
Magee is at least the third candidate to declare that they are running in the Town Election on May 7. Selectmen Moira E. Miller and John Lebeaux have also announced they are seeking re-election to their respective boards.
Candidates running for major offices, including Selectmen and the School Committee, need at least 50 signatures of registered Shrewsbury voters. Those wishing to run as a Town Meeting member need at least 10 signatures of registered voters who live in the precinct to be represented.
Nomination papers are available at the Town Clerk’s office, and must be returned to that office by 5 p.m. March 19 for certification.
