Letters to the Editor

Please support scouting

 Dear Editor:

My name is Jeffrey and I am a Boy Scout with Troop 603 in Malden. During this time of year, our troop does fundraising by selling popcorn and coffee. Your purchase helps us fund many activities such as camping, hiking, science, and many other outings as well as maintenance for Scouts facilities. These activities prepare me to be self-reliant and a resourceful leader for the future and create memorable experiences. You can arrange your orders by calling my father John Green at 617-962-1687 or visit the website https://www.trails-end.com/Support/Scout/WFMEL9O5.

Products vary in the website. If you don’t wish to purchase popcorn or coffee, you can also make a donation for our Troops. A portion of this donation will also go to scouting.

Kinship’s celebrating anniversary

Dear Editor:

This November marks Kinship’s fifth anniversary as your local family run florist. We cannot believe 5 years have passed and to say that we are overwhelmed with gratitude would be an understatement.

Looking back, our choice to open our doors in our hometown of Revere was the best decision we ever made. From day one, both residents and the thriving small business community has welcomed and supported us and showed us the true meaning of “Revere Pride.” We have cherished the opportunity to become active community members and will proudly continue to support our neighborhood and the people who make it great.

There are no words to express how truly grateful we are. To show our appreciation for your loyalty and support, we will be hosting a fall open house on Saturday, October 29th. There will be apple cider and pumpkin treats for all! To commemorate the occasion we will be giving away some fabulous gifts including: holiday decorating installations, an entire year of fresh flowers and one lucky bride will receive a complete wedding floral package (everything from bouquets to centerpieces!) Please join our Kinship family on October 29th, from 1:00 p.m.to 4:00 p.m.It has been an honor serving you and your family over these past five years. We hope you can join us as we look forward to the next five years of creating beautiful memories and happily ever afters!

Disagrees with School Committee vote on

Dear Editor,

The Revere School Committee’s recent vote against Question 2 to lift enrollment caps on public charter schools is based on the false assumption that voting for it would harm public education.

A Yes vote on Question 2 would allow the state to approve additional charters in the state’s lowest performing districts in a measured and strategic way, allowing for charters to grow where they are most needed and ensuring fair access to high quality public schools.

Since Revere is not among the lowest performing districts and is not at existing charter enrollment caps, the ballot question would have no impact in your city.

Charter schools do not subtract from public education, they add to it. Charter schools are nonprofit, public schools that provide parents with choices outside their local districts.

By voting against Question 2, the Revere School Committee is asking residents to deny equal access to parents whose children are being educated in some of the worst school systems in the state.

The scare tactics being employed by the teachers unions and other charter opponents are shameful. They are acting in their own self-interests to deny parents choices they deserve.
