The board presented plaques to them, in thanks for their service.
The Sharon School Committee on Wednesday night saluted a scientist and a local resource for their service. The board presented plaques to members Glenn Allen and Mitch Blaustein, whose three-year terms end after Tuesday's annual town election. Neither Allen nor Blaustein will seek re-election. Vice Chairman Jeff Cruzan said Allen, a research scientist at MIT, brough "an analytic insight" to the board's discussions, as well as a knack for asking "clarifying questions." Allen was a "real proponent and advocate for families" during his six years on the board, Cruzan said. "Glenn's decision not to run for a third term is our loss, but we wish him well," Cruzan said. Allen thanked the community for the chance to serve it. He said he enjoyed …

Wednesday marks his last school committee meeting.
Monday, May 7, 2012
To the Editor: I would like to thank all of the residents of Sharon for allowing me to serve for over 18 years on the school committee. This Wednesday is my last meeting. I have seen all five schools renovated, watched over 4,000 students at their graduations, served with 24 other school committee members, and made countless new friends, if we agreed on issues or not. Some years, many people ran and others just enough run for school committee. At next Tuesday's election, I congratulate Veronica and Katie in advance, and wish them well. I'm not leaving Dodge and my number's in the book. Good luck, Mitch Blaustein Sharon

Selectman now the only office not drawing multiple candidates.
Sharon School Committee member Mitch Blaustein won't seek another three-year term in May, ending 18 years on the board. Blaustein instead has taken out nomination papers for a five-year term on the planning board, joining Coach Lane resident Cheryl Weinstein and Wilshire Drive resident Robert Maidman. Susan Price is the incumbent. Blaustein said today that he has considered running for planning board "for over a year." He said he would have run last year if the seat drew no interest. "What I don't know, I know I can learn quickly," Blaustein said. Blaustein and Glenn Allen are the incumbent school committee members up for re-election at the May 15 annual town election. Both terms are for three years. Canoe River Road residents Amy Garcia …

Wednesday, October 19, 2011
Sharon School Committee member Mitch Blaustein probably won't see the first pitch of the 2011 World Series tonight. "I would probably watch after somebody wins three games, out of curiosity. If it was the Red Sox, I would build my schedule around the games," Blaustein told the Associated Press in a story carried nationwide today. The story asks fans and baseball professionals from across the nation, including former Red Sox star Curt Schilling, about interest in the series between the Texas Rangers and the St. Louis Cardinals. The best-of-seven series opens at 8:05 tonight in St. Louis.
