Paralegal Elected to Laconia School Board

Paralegal Stacie Sirois is the newest member of the Laconia School Board, winning by 75 votes in the only contested school board race in Ward 5.

She defeated former teacher and school administrator Doris Barnes who, at the age of 96, was beginning a new career in local politics. Sirois logged 526 votes to Barnes' 453.

Sirois has two children in the Laconia School system and spent much of her day holding a sign outside Woodland Heights Elementary School.

Fourth grader Duncan said he wanted his mother to lengthen recesses while sixth grader Rebecca would like to not have to walk to school anymore.

"I don't think either of those things are going to happen," Sirois said, laughing.

Sirois is a paralegal with attorney Ed Philpot and graduated from Laconia high School in 1987.
