Louisa Boatwright

Candidate Endorsement

“They are not other people’s children, they are our future, the future of America.” So said Bill Russell, iconic former Boston Celtic, Hall of Famer and social commentator commenting recently on public education. As usual he delivered a slam dunk. In my view, candidate Louisa Boatwright has always been a fierce champion of what Bill Russell is emphasizing.

To wit, Louisa has been active over the past 15 years in a variety of leadership and volunteer roles in Newport Public Schools (NPS) and in our community. As just one example, Louisa has been an integral part of the One Newport team that has created the NPS strategic plan pointing our way forward.

She is a leader and team player, experienced in technology and finance, knowledgeable and dedicated to the schools, our children and our future. I recommend we deliver a slam dunk and elect Louisa Boatwright to Newport’s School Committee.
