Letters to the Editor

Congratulations to new Mayor of Eastsound | Letter

Congratulations to our new Mayor Murphy, the Portguese Water Dog!

And a huge thanks to all of the supporters, candidates, voters and businesses that helped make the Children’s House 4th Annual Honorary Mayoral Race a success. Voters spent more than $3,500 in support of our Toddler and Preschool programs. Support included:

• More than 20 local businesses which selflessly offered valuable counter space to support the ballot boxes;

• A menagerie of candidates (Murphy, Mofo, Mr. Antiquus, Sir Clarence, Caprica and The Biped) and their faithful sponsors and fans;

• Literally thousands of voters from England to Eastsound, North Carolina to North Beach;

•  Children’s House families, teachers and students who walked, strolled and biked in two parades to bring attention to the annual fundraiser;

• Mayor April (and her two favorite supporters) who gave their time (and time again) to the campaign;

• Office Cupboard, which helped with printing;

• Kaleidoscope who let us lead the Pet Parade;

• Voters with coins, checkbooks and credit cards!

Children’s House has been an integral part of our island community for more than 40 years due in great part to the generous contributions and support of both islanders and visitors who understand the importance of quality, affordable early education. Your contributions really do make a difference! Thank you all.

Susan Anderson

Executive Director and Children’s House Board of Directors
