A Personal Message from Manny: Why I am running for Salem School Committee

As a proud alumnus of the Salem Public Schools, I am firmly committed ensuring that all of our students receive a high-quality 21st-century education. I want to be a New Voice for our students, parents, educators, and community if I am elected to the Salem School Committee.

Our campaign's mission is to engage all of our stakeholders in Salem and to ensure that we are designing a school system that is human-centered and servicing the needs of ALL our students. I look forward to the opportunity to listen to your ideas on the campaign trail and working as hard as I can to earn your support on November 7th.

I am a firm believer that the education of a child does not end when the school bell rings. I have seen first hand the importance of strong collaboration between our Salem Public Schools and the vibrant youth serving organizations in our Salem community. I would not have been able to graduate from Northeastern University, Cum Laude, without the support of the caring adults that live and work in Salem. I am personally committed to advocating for programming in our Salem Public Schools that support not only the academic success of our students but also their social and emotional development.  We are all stakeholders in the personal, academic, and professional success of our students.

Thus far I have dedicated my life to public service. It has been an honor and a privilege to serve the American people as a National Park Service Ranger at Salem Maritime, the Chairman of the Governors Statewide Youth Council, and as a community leader and mentor for our young people in Salem. I am ready to be of greater service to our city of Salem and continue to be an advocate for our students.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit to learn more about my candidacy and our campaign. My candidacy and this campaign could not be possible without the support of the community.
