Dear Friends and Neighbors

I met Megan Fidler-Carey soon after my family moved to Reading in late 2018.  I wanted to get to know our neighborhood so I went to lots of community meetings, including Reading Embraces Diversity, downtown revitalization planning and the ‘Pulse of Reading’ conversations hosted by the library. Megan was at nearly every one! I saw first-hand her ability to connect with people, truly listen to different points of view and work with people to come up with solutions that work for everyone. I know Megan will be a great asset to our School Committee, listening to residents and respectfully collaborating with other Committee members and school and District leadership.

I am impressed by Megan’s deep knowledge of education from her experience as a parent, a teacher and regional leadership roles, including Co-Chairing the Massachusetts Network for Extended Day Directors for the past nine years. I particularly value her commitment to ensuring all our children have equal access to a high-quality education.

Megan brings a fresh, positive voice to our School Committee and I ask you to consider supporting her on March 3rd!

Warmly yours,

Ilka Walkley
