Kelly Fantoli (R): "I live in North Windham and I am running for the Board of Education position, not because I have the solutions to our town’s school and educational issues but because I am sincerely concerned about our town’s schools and our taxpayers," said Fantoli. "I believe that if you are one to continuously complain about issues that are going on you should get more involved. I want to be proud of our schools and not embarrassed to admit my children do attend or have attended Windham’s school system. I have a genuine interest in our town and its citizens and I am willing to do what I can to help improve it."
