My name is Mea Quinn Mustone; and I’d like to formally announce my candidacy for another 2 year term on the Medford School Committee. My husband Tim and I are the parents of six children, (Quinn 15, Teagan 12, Cullen 11, Nevin 9, Rowan 8 and Declan, 5). Two of my children attend the Andrews Middle School and 3 attend the Roberts Elementary School. I am a life-long resident of Medford and I proudly and humbly ask for your vote in my reelection bid for the Medford School Committee.
For the past 20 months, I have been serving as a school committee member. While many of our goals have been achieved, there are still many to work on. We addressed issues relevant to all parents: school bus transportation, large class sizes, special education, student safety, student enrichment and building and grounds maintenance.
As a school committee member, I have learned to work well with the mayor, the school committee and the chief of police to accomplish concrete improvements. I helped to address the overcrowding on some of our school buses. In regards to class size, we have maintained and supported small classroom sizes throughout the district. As a committee member, I have had the opportunity to work closely with the Special Education Parent Advisory Committee, addressing and ensuring all students’ needs are achieved. Our student enrichment has been enhanced with the hiring of 2 additional music teachers.
A concern that was brought to my attention as a new committee member was the need to address the maintenance and beautification of Medford High School. With the Mayor’s support, ascetic improvements are happening at the high school. If reelected, I would like to implement a master facilities plan addressing the upkeep and care of all our school buildings. Please reach out to me if you have suggestions on how we can improve the physical space of the high school or any of our other school buildings.
Without question, I am invested in our schools and committed to ensuring that every child receives a caring, safe and challenging educational experience that will prepare them for the future. I encourage you to get in touch with me via email (email@example.com), Facebook (Mea Quinn Mustone for Medford School Committee) or phone (781-391-5909).
