Susan Fogliano | Regional Board of Education
What inspired you to run for local office?
I previously served on the BOE from 1995 to 2011, and I wanted to return to community service in retirement. I believe it is critical for us to maintain quality public education, with a common sense approach, and with dedication to fairness and transparency.
What do you hope to accomplish on the BOE?
I will serve as an effective Board member by putting students first, do my best with tax dollars given, with no political agenda.
What do you want voters to know about you?
I am interested first and foremost in serving the community of Old Lyme, and I believe in public education. I am an experienced and trained Board member who will work with anyone who wants what is best for our town.
