Cyr has been a leader since high school days

Take a moment to read this letter to the editor from Brewster School Committee member Marie Enochty.

On Sept. 8, I am voting for Julian Cyr for state Senate. As a member of the Brewster School Committee, and an educator and advocate for over 35 years, I support Julian because he has the knowledge and experience to serve the Cape and Islands.

I have known Julian since he was the student representative on the Nauset School Committee in 2003-2004.

When we decided to fight for an override to support our seven schools, Julian stepped up. He marched in town parades, he volunteered at phone banks. We passed that override by a narrow margin and Julian was instrumental in our win. He is a product of the exemplary public schools we have on the Cape.

I stayed in contact with Julian throughout his college years at New York University and his career at the state Department of Public Health in Boston. There has never been a time when Julian has not been engaged and advocating for issues that matter to us.

He continues to be a steadfast advocate for public education, public health and all the issues that affect us in Massachusetts and the Cape.

When Julian says he’ll show up, he does! With knowledge and commitment on his side.

Marie Enochty
