To the Editor:
Yesterday I received a mailer from the Trumbull Republican party against Vicki Tesoro's agenda for supporting education in Trumbull. During the years that Vicki Tesoro held positions, in the capacity of a volunteer, as PTA president in the elementary school, middle school and Trumbull High School and as a volunteer on many academic committees, she was an advocate for our children and the Trumbull education system. As a private citizen, not an elected official, she was outspoken on budget issues and supporting increases to the education budget for the betterment of our town. She championed efforts to reduce class sizes, improve academic and curriculum supports. She advocated for the improved crisis-intervention services and enhanced school security. Vicki volunteered year after year in these positions because of her tireless pursuit of the betterment of our school system for our children and for our town.
