Due to the COVID19 global pandemic, casting a vote in the Board of Health is more important than ever; therefore, I will be voting for Maureen Richichi on March 13, 2021.
I have worked with Maureen in the Lincoln Public schools for over 15 years where she served as the school Nurse. Her professional experience makes Maureen highly qualified for this position. Yet, I feel that her greatest contribution will come from her desire to always have open, honest, and transparent conversations about the important issues. She values a process that is inclusive and respectful as much as the decision.
We have collaborated on many projects: coaching cross country, facilitating an overnight field trip to the Museum of Science in Boston (8 years), and daily health situations common to schools.
I have always been impressed with Maureen’s dedication, compassion, and willingness to do what is best for all children. I am certain she will approach her work with the Board of Health in the same manner.
This is why I will be voting for Maureen Richichi for the Bedford Board of Health.
