Accolades for candidate Corsini

Accolades for candidate Corsini

Few contemporary candidates for public office enter the field with the extraordinary qualities and qualifications of Arthur Corsini. From personal observations, I will reflect on a few:

He is a compassionate, honest, selfless and dedicated gentleman with a wealth of management experience. Corsini was the principal of Stephen Olney Elementary School during the many years that my two grandchildren were students. I drove them to and from school daily, routinely watching until they entered the building and later waiting for them to be dismissed. It was during those times that I witnessed repeated acts of kindness, concern and responsibility for the students by Principal Corsini.

He greeted every student as they entered the school building and escorted them to the school bus at dismissal, always holding his umbrella over their heads during pouring rainstorms. Did I neglect to say that he knew and greeted every student by name? Always upbeat and with a ready smile, I have never known him to be downcast. These actions come from the heart and not from the requirements of a job description. Parents, teachers, students and residents of North Providence alike will benefit immensely from Arthur Corsini’s presence on the North Providence School Committee and from the contributions to public education that he is certain to make on their behalf.
