Editor, Townsman:

I am writing in support of Amy Hafensteiner, candidate for School Committee.

As a veteran who has held numerous leadership positions, I’ve learned to be a good judge of character and leadership. It is clear that Hafensteiner is a person of character and the leader Andover needs.

Her leadership and recruiting experience make her uniquely qualified to serve on Andover’s School Committee. She has led diverse teams in the accomplishment of challenging assignments, with an inclusive and respectful leadership style that produces results.

If you want someone who is genuine and listens to all sides of an issue before making a decision, Amy Hafensteiner is your candidate.

She wasn’t asked or picked to run for School Committee; she stepped forward and volunteered, not because it would be easy, but because it is the right thing to do.

The progress we have made and will continue to make as a country is because of people like her, stepping forward to be a part of something greater than themselves.

I ask the voters of Andover to remember that as Americans we’re all a part of something greater than ourselves and remember that this election is not about us but the students of Andover Public Schools, our children and our future.

I ask your readers to join me in voting Amy Hafensteiner for School Committee on March 24.

Andover needs leadership, not more of the same.
