ANDOVER – Today, Chairwoman of the Acton-Boxborough Regional School Committee Diane Baum endorsed Dan Koh in the Third District congressional race. The endorsement highlights the strong support Koh has received from school committee members, superintendents, teachers, and other education leaders throughout the district. Koh has also released a comprehensive education platform, focused on implementing universal Pre-K, strengthening public schools, supporting teacher development programs, and reducing student debt.

“I had the chance to hear Dan speak in Acton a few weeks ago,” said Baum. “Dan spoke candidly about his experience growing up with a learning disability, and it is clear to me that he understands the critical importance of early intervention and is dedicated to making sure all children have a great education. We need more progressive young leaders like Dan in office, and I am so excited to support his campaign.” Baum is endorsing in her personal capacity.

“I am thrilled to have Diane’s support,” said Koh. “She has been a committed advocate for creating an inclusive education system. Right now, the Trump administration is trying to slash federal education funding and roll back loan forgiveness programs. We need to stand up for our students, close the achievement gap, and give everyone the opportunity to get ahead.”
