Methuen School Committee candidates weigh in on having kids in city schools

(Continued)

“My philosophy always has been you don’t need to be a parent to understand the fundamentals of the School Committee and the School Department,” Chaisson said yesterday. “I don’t have any children yet. I plan on having children who go through Methuen schools. But I’m a product of Methuen schools. I knew what schools needed because I was a recent graduate. You’re an independent voice when you don’t have students immediately affected by the decision that you make.”

Chaisson cannot run for re-election due to term limits.

The election is Nov. 5.
