My name is Elechi Kadete. I am running for Cambridge School Committee so that I can use my skills as a financial analyst and grant administrator to make a difference in the lives of all our children. Cambridge currently spends over 25K per year on each student. The School Committee needs someone with the educational background and experience to responsible manage these funds.
Furthermore I am an avid chess player, and former president of the Brandeis Chess Club. I realize how important the game of chess can be in the development of a child’s mind. Especially in the augmentation of strategic and cognitive skills. With your support I plan to introduce the game of chess to the Cambridge Public Schools especially in the form of early education programs.
