Letter to the Editor: Bauscher is the Best Choice for Bedford Board of Education

I am pleased to write in support of Michael Bauscher’s candidacy for the Bedford Central School District Board of Education.

I have been a Mount Kisco resident since 2006 and have had two children in the school system since 2016. I’ve experienced the diversity and strong community bonds as a parent who has had children enrolled in both West Patent and Mount Kisco elementary schools, and I feel that we are lucky to be part of such a wonderful and welcoming school district and community.

I first met Mike when he was the coach of my son’s tee-ball team about four years ago. As a Mount Kisco Little League coach (where we now coach together), he immediately struck me as a trustworthy person who genuinely cares about the development of our children. We got to meet his wife and two children, and our boys became good friends while in the same class at Mount Kisco Elementary School. This is where I got to see the fruits of Mike’s and the board’s labor of implementing the Dual Language Bilingual Education program and school of choice as an option for all in the school district.

Our district has done an amazing job balancing the safety of our students, teachers and staff with meeting the educational needs of its learners. Mike is hard working, dedicated, an effective communicator and fully invested in our education system. His willingness to listen to all viewpoints and his record of making sound judgments for the best outcome for all is why I’ll be voting for Mike Bauscher on May 18.
