WESTPORT, Conn. -- The Westport Daily Voice accepts signed letters to the editor. Send letters to firstname.lastname@example.org .
I would like to take this opportunity to inform the public of an outstanding candidate for Westport's Board of Education. For the past fourteen years, Karen Kleine has tirelessly volunteered her time at our schools, Temple Israel and our public library. At our schools, Karen started her volunteer work by running many PTA functions. Her execution and proficiency in the many roles she fulfilled was respected and admired by her peers and culminated in her being asked and accepting the role of President of the PTA for both Kings Highway Elementary and Coleytown Middle School. A role she both enjoyed and excelled in.
Her volunteer efforts at Temple Israel have involved being chairperson of the Youth Committee and serving on the Religious School Committee for many years. She was also Co-Chair of the Search Committee for the Temple's new Youth Director.
At the Westport Library, Karen was instrumental in the Harry Potter parties that were held when new books were released, the Haunted Library and the Hunger Games events. Karen has lived in Westport for the past 14 years with her husband Joe and children Suzanne, Sarah and Dan. She cares about our community and has dedicated her efforts to bettering the educational experience of our children, whether through their public school experience, religious experience, or enriching their library experience. Please vote for Karen Kleine for Westport’s Board of Education.
