Holbrook

Pierce running for School Committee

Continue reading below

Amie Pierce, who supports building a K-through-12 school in Holbrook, has pulled nomination papers to run for a seat on the School Committee. Already, she has received enthusiastic support from outgoing School Committee member Ann Poppenga, who has decided not to run for reelection April 2. Poppenga said she “wholeheartedly, 100 percent” supports Pierce because she is committed to students, is involved in the schools, and will bring energy to the board. On the controversial issue of school regionalization, Pierce said she generally does not favor it, but is “not 100 percent against it.” She does, however, adamantly oppose having the town pay to send students to other districts as an alternative to a new building. So far, no one else has pulled nomination papers for this seat, and the deadline for filing signed nomination papers is Feb. 13. A second seat on the committee is also up for election, and incumbent John Flanagan has pulled papers.
