Hallowell resigns from Nashua BOE

NASHUA- Citing “an array of special interests” that have “made governing the district difficult if not impossible,” longtime Board of Education member Robert Hallowell resigned Monday night from the seat he’s held for 10 years.

“I have tried in my 10 years on the board to listen to parents and educators and to ask the right questions to understand what obstacles are in the way of teaching our students and to find innovative and collaborative solutions to remove those obstacles,” Hallowell said in an email he sent to city and school district personnel and local media outlets.

“However, it has been increasingly more difficult to have productive conversations around improving the education of our students. Constantly changing administrations and an array of special interests have made governing the district difficult if not impossible.”

Hallowell was in the middle of a four-year term set to expire at the end of 2019. A special election will be scheduled to fill the seat for the remainder of his term.

A full story will appear in Wednesday’s Telegraph and on www.nashuatelegraph.com.
