Dr. Yvel Crevecoeur was elected Tuesday to the Board of Education

To the Editor,

First, I am sending a special thank you to my donors and to my Yvel 2015 campaign treasurers, Mr. and Mrs. Henry and Sandra Burgos (and to my goddaughters and their siblings and parents for helping me with my campaign photos!).

Second, I know I should say this everyday, but thank you to my family and friends.

Third, I am grateful to the voting and non-voting members of District A and the Norwalk Democratic Town Committee for their support and guidance. In general, I love seeing and being a part of team; I’m glad to have seen this in action. A special thank you to Mayor Harry Rilling for his leadership and endorsement and to the Connecticut Working Families Party for endorsing me. I thank Mr. Ed Camacho, Esq., Chairman of the Norwalk Democratic Town Committee, and the Democratic teams across the City of Norwalk. I am honored to have so many individuals across the city and state behind me.

I would be remiss if I did not send special thank you acknowledgements to the local parent organizations. Thank you to Norwalk SPEDPartners for supporting me early on in the campaign. Another special thank you to Mrs. Jessica Garnett and Mrs. Barbara Meyer-Mitchell from Norwalk Parents for Education for their support, guidance, and help in making connections with parents, voters, and concerned citizens throughout the city.

I thank the current members of the Norwalk Public Schools (NPS) Board of Education for their service. I’m looking forward to working with each of you and Dr. Steven Adamowski, Superintendent of Norwalk Public Schools, to improve the academic and social outcomes of our students and the working conditions of the employees. We’re the 6th largest city in the state and I’m looking forward to us being one of the best school systems, if not the best, in the state over time.

Over the course of the campaign, I had the opportunity to meet and talk with my opponent for the District A Board of Education seat, Mr. Joseph Perella, at various meetings/events. I’m glad to have had the opportunity to learn more about him and to hear his vision for NPS. I thank him for running a professional campaign. I look forward to listening to his suggestions and those of other parents, leaders, and personnel from businesses and community-based organizations across the city and state.

Being new to the political process, it has been quite interesting and one that has helped me grow personally and professionally in a short period of time. I partly entered “politics” because I believe my experiences and expertise would benefit us as a city. I’m looking forward to being a part of a “boots on the ground” team (the Board) that is charged with solving the pressing educational issues that affect us all in so many ways. I’m glad this process has brought with it the opportunity to establish new connections and friendships.

Again, thank you for your support and for allowing me to help us move NPS into the next chapter of its growth!

Dr. Yvel C. Crevecoeur

    Reaching out to say thank you to people who helped shows a nice level of class. With his background, especially some expertise in special needs education, he should be a real asset to the BOE.
