Ideas on Education: The Candidates’ Views

Public Debate and Q&A on October 28

NEWBURYPORT, MA--The Nock PTO will host an education-focused debate/Q&A session for Newburyport’s two mayoral candidates on October 28 at 7 p.m. at the Nock Middle School auditorium. The event is open to the public.

The Newburyport school system and educational funding is a hot topic for many residents and this venue will give candidates Donna Holaday and James Shanley an opportunity to express their individual philosophies, ideas and experiences on school issues. The audience will also earn more about what concerns the Newburyport community in the area of education.

“Whether you are a parent, life-long resident, or business owner, we all need to understand how our next mayor will handle issues around our schools,” said Beth Simkins, Nock PTO President. “This will be an objective, unbiased event open to the entire community.”

Questions will be pulled randomly the night of the event and read by a moderator. Each candidate will have equal time to provide their answer to each question. To submit a question, email or mail them to Nock PTO Mayoral Debate, 70 Low Street, Newburyport, MA 01950. All questions will be read anonymously.


The Nock PTO is a not-for-profit group whose focus is providing the Nock parent, teacher and student an enhanced educational environment. For more information on PTO activities, contact Beth Simkins at 978 549 7912;
