I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who voted for me for the Riverhead Board of Education. I appreciate your faith in me to represent you and to work to move the district forward.
I also would like to thank the individuals and community groups who stood behind me, believed in me and worked hard to get me a seat.
In closing, I want to congratulate Amelia Lantz and Christopher Dorr in also securing a seat on the board. Thank you again for your confidence in me. Together we can work to move our children into the future with the best education.
Laurie Downs of Riverhead was elected to the school board May 12.
