Why You Should Vote for Brian Remer for WSESD School Board

I am Brian Remer, I live in Guilford and I am asking for your vote for the WSESD School Board.

As an educator and facilitator, I am able to listen to many viewpoints, and find the common thread that leads to collaborative action. I want to bring that ability to our school system.

The way people learn has been at the core of my professional life. Whether teaching adults in non-profit organizations, children in middle school, or staff of the state of Vermont, I know that education needs to be engaging – especially for young people today. I care deeply that we provide the opportunities for students and prepare them for the world. Our daughter Tilden graduated from BUHS so I’ve always had a stake in our local public-school system. Well-educated young people energize our communities with passion, optimism, and creativity.

With the effects of the pandemic and the pressure of social media, I am concerned about the mental health demands on our children. I led Vermont’s Umatter suicide prevention initiative, taught classes on sexual harassment and bias, and I would like to ensure that young people have the support they need as they grow to adulthood.

Balancing resources for schools with the impact on taxpayers is also a challenging but necessary role for the school board. I look forward to acting as a liaison between the community and the school district, ensuring that diverse perspectives are heard and considered in decision-making.

I hope you share my vision for a positive, inclusive educational system that will support our community for the future. If you do, please vote for me and encourage your neighbors and friends to vote too.
