Elect Lawrence O'Brien for Amherst School Committee

My interest in serving on the school committee stems in part from the fact that my daughters were educated in our town’s public schools.  My two oldest daughters graduated from the high school last June and currently attend colleges in Boston; my youngest daughter is in the 10th grade at Amherst Regional High School.  I am pleased to say that all three have been well prepared academically and socially by their K through 12 education in the Amherst schools.  I realize that my daughters’ experiences are not necessarily those of all students in our schools.  If I have the opportunity to serve on the school committee, I would like to contribute constructively and civilly to the formulation of policies that ensure academic achievement and a rigorous intellectual experience for each and every one of our students.

My Background


I am happy to meet with any parent/guardian organization or community group.  I also hope members of our community will contact me to share your vision for our schools.
