Watertown News Press Release written by Ken Woodland:
It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I write today to endorse Jennifer (Holt) Nicholson for Watertown School Committee.
I have known Jennifer and the Holt family for decades and her character and credentials are almost too good to be true. A potential school committee member who attended and graduated from the school system, currently has kids in that system, is actively involved in leadership roles in the PTO and is a teacher!
This level of personal insight into the Watertown school system, combined with a background and training in education, sets Jennifer apart as being exceptionally able to implement positive change and ensure the best possible outcomes for our children. More than even her qualifications, Jennifer’s vision for our schools is one I believe in and share for our students.
She believes in the benefits of a strong, multifaceted public school system and being a part of a community that not only provides the resources necessary for students to succeed but also creates a culture of acceptance and inclusion. All of this accomplished with increased participation, transparency and accountability.
Given the amazing possibilities that come along with her candidacy, I ask all of Watertown to consider voting for Jennifer (Holt) Nicholson on November 2.
Watertown News Press Release written by Steve Messina:
Dear Watertown Voters,
I served for three consecutive four year terms on the Watertown School Committee beginning in the late nineties.
As a candidate, I made one promise to the citizens of Watertown that I would always ask myself one simple question, "Is my vote in the best interest of Watertown's children?"
This year, there is a school committee candidate, Jennifer (Holt) Nicholson, who I am confident will be asking that same question.
I have known Jennifer since she was born. She has grown into a woman who is passionate about education and fully invested in our community. She has the drive, intelligence, commitment, and above all, the common sense needed to be an excellent School Committee member.
Please join me in voting for Jennifer Nicholson for Watertown School Committee.
Written Statement from a WPS K-12 Classmate:
I have known Jennifer (Holt) Nicholson since we were both in Ms. Boyd’s Kindergarten class at the Cunniff School and graduated from Watertown High School in 2003.
Throughout my years in school, I was always the shy and quiet kid in class. I never talked much, but I did take notice of things that were going on around me. Jennifer was an excellent student academically and she was also solid athletically, but most importantly the thing that sets her apart is her kindness and positivity.
It is something that she and her husband have instilled in their two young children, who I have come to know with their participation in Watertown Recreation Department programming.
Jennifer’s passion for the Town of Watertown and continuing to fight for our children’s education is unmatched and background as an educator and alum of Watertown Public Schools makes her the ideal candidate for the School Committee.
Please consider this on November 2.
Watertown High School Class of 2003
Classmate of Jennifer (Holt) Nicholson
