Donation to the Haverhill Public Schools:
Last summer during an untelevised School Committee Meeting Scott Wood and other members of the School Committee voted themselves a pay increase of approximately $2400.00. I was the most vocal member of the Committee against the raise and voted against it. When news of the raise broke, WBZ news came to Haverhill to interview me. I stated that I would donate my share of the raise back to the Haverhill Public Schools. I am glad to announce that I have informed Superintendent Scully of my first donation in the amount of $1,500.00 to the Nettle Middle School for a new basketball court. I will make additional donations back to the schools as the year progresses. I encourage the parents of the PTO's to contact me and let me know of projects that they need help with.
