First, I would like to thank all of my supporters and poll workers, many of whom are current or retired teachers. In spite of the less-than-ideal weather, they spent long hours at the polls engaging voters.

I am glad that the St Mary’s County community has strongly supported my efforts on behalf of all of the children of the county. Many of the people I spoke to during the campaign recognized the importance of the long hours that I devote to my position.

I would like to talk about the issue of parent involvement. Since my first day as a teacher and continuing until today, I have been a strong advocate of parental involvement in education. I would like to remind the parents that board members can be reached by email at The mailing address is: Board of Education of St. Mary’s County, 23160 Moakley St., P.O. Box 641, Leonardtown, MD 20650.

I would like to thank the voters of St. Mary’s County for providing me the opportunity to continue to serve all of the students.

Marilyn Crosby, Lexington Park
