I'm writing to lend my support to Sue Chalifoux Zephir in her bid to become our next state Senator.
I have known Sue for many years as a neighbor, friend and city councilor. She has served our city well and I know she will do the same as state Senator.
Sue is a strong supporter of education and for increasing its funding in Boston. I believe that she will work hard to improve the Chapter 70 funding formula that will benefit all schools.
Her support of the Fair Share Constitutional Amendment will help increase funding for transportation which is taking a huge amount of money out of the budget process for all towns and cities. She also advocates for reducing the cost of higher education so that graduates are not faced with a large debt that will take years to pay off which this amendment also supports.
Her belief in adequate funding of special education that would ensure all schools are in compliance and all students receive the education that they deserve is commendable.
Please join me in supporting Sue Chalifoux Zephir on Dec. 5.
Ward 4 School Committee Representative
