McLAUGHLIN MEETS WITH NEW BRUNSWICK/BRITTONKILL SUPERINTENDENT
Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin meets with Brunswick/Brittonkill Superintendent Dr. Angelina Bergin to discuss education issues, Wednesday, September 18, 2013.
Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin (R,C,I-Melrose) today met with Brunswick/Brittonkill Superintendent Dr. Angelina Bergin as she begins her first year as superintendent for the district. McLaughlin valued the opportunity to meet with Bergin, and some members of the school board, to discuss the challenges the district will face during the upcoming school year and the key programs and items that will be on the district’s radar during next year’s state budget negotiations. McLaughlin also had an opportunity to visit teachers and students in Tamarac Secondary School.
“As a parent of two children in public schools and the spouse of a public school teacher, I understand the importance of listening to and working with superintendents, administrators and teachers to help give them the resources they need so they can better educate our children,” said McLaughlin. “It’s important for elected representatives to understand how state policies impact students and teachers. Conversations like today with Dr. Bergin shed light on how we can take the challenges of today and turn them into the opportunities of tomorrow.
Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin speaks with an 8th grade social studies class at Tamarac Secondary School.
“Today’s conversation, ideas, input and suggestions will help me better advocate for upstate schools when lawmakers return to Albany in January. I thank Dr. Bergin for the opportunity to meet with her and look forward to working with her in the future.”
Assemblyman McLaughlin represents the 107th district, which consists of parts of Rensselaer, Columbia and Washington counties. For more information, please visit Assemblyman McLaughlin’s official website.
