Tony Labranche for Souhegan Cooperative School Board


Tony LaBranche, Contributing Author

Hello, my name is Tony Labranche and I am a current Senior at Souhegan High School.

Last year I made a fateful decision, I was going to run to be on the Souhegan Cooperative School Board. Last week I finally filed for candidacy.

 I have always been interested in being involved in this community since I was just a freshman at Souhegan. During my past four years there, I have always tried to give back to my community through service and leadership. This is what I intend on doing when I am elected to the Souhegan Cooperative School Board on March 10th.

As a senior at Souhegan, I have seen what it is really like on the ground level. I have seen the issues that our school faces and I have seen where your tax dollars go and I have seen the true impacts of school board policies and decisions. And I have already used my abilities to help solve issues through my involvement at the school, from being on Community Council to reforming the Judiciary at Souhegan, I have also founded the new Student Union.

I would like to think that although I am the youngest person running for election, this gives me significant experience that will aid me in being a successful school board member. I have planned the next three years of my life around being a school board member. It is my duty and honor to serve and give back to my community. I understand that this is an important commitment that needs to be properly tended to and not ignored, so if elected I will stay in Amherst and attend Nashua Community College to stay focused on the issues here at home. They say home is where the heart is, and I know my heart is at Souhegan and here in Amherst. Souhegan has taught me life lessons and reinforced my core values. I am truly grateful for the opportunity that Amherst has given me by moving here. I have lived here for nearly 6 years now and it has truly had a transformative impact on me.

Help me give back to this community by voting for Tony Labranche on March 10th.
