If there is one memory Kristen Polimeno will take away from her first campaign for public office, it is that of her three children driving in the car and counting the number of Polimeno signs scattered around town.

I acknowledge mrs. polimeno's background. I hope that she understands her role on the school committe is to serve the town,not to be an educator. I feel that the present sc does too much micromanaging. I wish her well, but I would advise her as well as the other two candidiates that shawsheen tech is a different school district, not under the authority of the Tewksbury sc. Concentrate on issues that you can impact.

I believe that her passion and her campaign committee's passion is called "bullet voting". I was shocked to see this on TI. Mr. Russell is now getting my second vote!

Well, duh...there are no circuit breakers for transportation and the Tech....she may be a great teacher, but from the sounds and lack of proof on her website of accomplishments, she may need some mroe time as a student - not knocking her...may be a good teacher....BUT we don't need another teacher...we need an out of the box thinker...seen examples of that on Puccia's site - still looking for a russel site......

I don't know if anyone has checked out this link above, but I think that Scott needs to stay out of the School Committee's race ALL together.

He's practically stating that Polimeno "IS" the candidate. I wonder if she gets in if she will immediately go for the chairperson position??

I just picked up the paper on the way home from work and was SHOCKED to see that he DID in fact support Joe Russell. He started off as a closet supporter and now all of a sudden a few days before the election he's come out???????

Wow....I'm telling you that I will personally will NEVER support him for another term as selectman considering that HE supports the mess that Joe negotiated us into NOW as a town.

The BOS got rid of Cressman and I think I know who the next one is to go.

Well Franko, what do you expect from a true politican, deny, deny, deny and then finally the truth comes out....hmmmmm. Scott should stay out of it, he's done so much flip flopping throughout Polimeno's campaign my head is spinning. How can anyone trust a word that comes out of his mouth, I will NEVER vote for him again.

I am also shocked when my daughter told me she got this email from the Polimeno campaign. Now they are trying to do damage control which is too late, damage is already done. I think her campaign was fully aware this email went out, the person who sent it is a friend of Polimeno. How did she get everyone's email addresses if she didn't get it from the Polimeno camp??? How did her camp get all these unsolicted emails?? All my years of living here, I never saw such bad tacky tactics that were done from the Polimeno camp. From campaigning in schools during open house(wearing campaign stickers), holding signs in front of schools. I heard from a teacher there is even Polimeno stickers on the teachers bulletin boards. What's next... stickers on the kids??? I'm sure someone will post she had nothing to do with it. If that's the case, Polimeno should take control of her own camp. It's nice to see the other candidates haven't stooped this low.

Well if Scott Wilson is stating Polimeno "IS" the candidate, who knows...maybe it was his idea to send out that email to bullet vote her. I wonder if that's where her camp got all those HS and Sports emails???

Yeah, wel willson IS on and running her campaign and I DID recieve a 'similar bullet style vote' request letter from him. Problem is..I was so sick of the TRASH from this camp I deleted it. Hoping someone will pass it over again so I can post it here or on TI...for those who still think she's a 'clean campaign'
