Campaign themes

2013

During a September 30, 2013 candidate forum, Sanchez responded to questions about ways to improve district schools. "“We have to start targeting students when they are smaller, start talking to the parents (when children are young) and tell them how important it is to be involved in their child’s education," said Sanchez in response to a question about how to improve student performance. Sanchez also supported in-school punishments rather than suspensions for students who used profanity, countering Superintendent Kelt Cooper's policy of stronger penalties for inappropriate behavior.[2]

What was at stake?

Five seats were at stake. Incumbent Democrats Sharon Beloin-Saavedra and Judy Greco were on the ballot. Both candidates were successful in their re-election bids. The New Britain Democratic Town Committee endorsed newcomer Daisy Sanchez for the 2013 election, who also won a seat on the board. Daniel Davis, Nick Mercier and Stacey Rosado received the endorsement of the New Britain Republican Town Committee. Only Rosado did not win a seat on the board. Current members Paul Carver, Anthony Kane and Luisa Leal did not file for re-election.

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100.0%. Each column will add up to 100.0% after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.[5]
