David P. Sampson, former Superintendent of the Upper Cape Cod Regional Technical School, has announced he will seek the currently vacant seat for Bourne representative to the UCT school committee during the upcoming November 6th election. Mr. Sampson served the school from 1976-1985 as Assistant Director, and from 1985 until 2001 as Superintendent. He was a Sandwich resident from 1976 until 2003 when he relocated to Bourne.

Mr. Sampson said, “The school is a significant educational component in our community, providing opportunities for adults and adolescents. I am very proud of the district’s accomplishments and the successes of our students.”  Sampson continued, “this position is a unique way to continue my service to UCT in a new capacity, and further contribute to the district’s ongoing success.”

Community service has been a major activity for Mr. Sampson, who has held leadership positions and participated in fundraising activities for the Bourne-Sandwich Rotary Club, Canal Region Chamber of Commerce, Kelley Foundation, Cape Abilities, Falmouth Hospital, Cape Cod Healthcare, Otis Civilian Advisory Council, and many other local organizations.

The School Committee is a nine member board inclusive of representatives from the district’s five sending towns of Bourne, Sandwich, Falmouth, Wareham, and Marion.  Committee members serve the district at large and residents from all sending communities have the opportunity to vote for school committee representatives from each town.

Voting on November 6 requires writing in “David Sampson” under Bourne Representative in the Regional School Committee section of the ballot and completely filling in the corresponding oval.  Regional School Committee votes can be cast by residents in all five sending towns of Bourne, Falmouth, Sandwich, Marion, and Wareham.
