To the editor:

I was surprised to learn that Salem schools Superintendent William Cameron had accepted a similar position with the Central Berkshire Regional School District.

He's done a good job during a time Salem's school system was experiencing financial problems.

But in choosing a replacement, the city should seek a superintendent who will stay here.

Over the years, Salem has had many well-qualified people who lived here and would have made excellent superintendents had they been given the opportunity.

One in particular was the late George Filion, who served as principal of the Phillips School from 1946 to 1952.

Someone who comes to mind today is Salem High School Principal David Angeramo who has roots in the city. I doubt he would have any thought of leaving.

He and others like him could add stability to a school system, which has been sadly lacking same.
