To the Editor:

Maureen Reedy will be an excellent and innovative state representative for our district.

Maureen is a great teacher who was recognized as Ohio's Teacher of the Year because she gets things done. She is a tireless spokesperson for education and issues related to the common good. Finally, Maureen is a team player and a strong advocate for people with whom she works.

People know that they can count on her to get things done.

We have known Maureen for over 25 years in several roles. First, she was our professional colleague at Barrington Elementary School, Jones Middle School and Wickliffe Elementary School. In all of these Arlington schools, Maureen was relentless in her work to help each student succeed by continuously improving her teaching methods.

Personally and gratefully, we also knew Maureen as an outstanding teacher; she was our daughter's fourth-grade teacher who exceeded our high expectations for educators teaching our own kids. Sarah thrived in Maureen's class, as did hundreds of other children because Maureen didn't give up on any child. She worked until she found a way to help each one achieve to the highest level.

We encourage residents to vote for Maureen Reedy for our next state representative. She will be a much-needed breath of fresh air in the Statehouse and she will respond to and get things done for her constituents.
