Letter: Kreutzer Committed to Community

Lewisboro Town Councilman Frank Kelly writes in support of Paul Kreutzer, Katonah Lewisboro superintedent of schools.

Ed. Note: The following letter was sent to the Katonah Lewisboro school board and re-printed here with the author's permission.

Dear Members of the Board:

It has been brought to my attention that the whereabouts and deportment of Dr. Kreutzer during the hurricane emergency has been the subject of some controversy.

In the 18 years I have lived in Lewisboro and my past term on the Town Board, I can recall no Superintendent more committed to, and visibly involved in our community than Dr. Kreutzer.

During, and in preparation for the emergency Dr. Kreutzer attended and participated in the sometimes tense and contentious planning, staffing and update meetings. He exhibited grace and good humor at all times. His perspective was judicious, helpful and wise.

Moreover, he and sometimes his family, attended at the emergency operations center multiple times per day; just to see if they could help out. He did this in addition to personally appearing at, and checking on, physical facilities of the school district. It is to be noted that these forays around the district were not without some personal risk in the early going.

Dr. Kreutzer’s community involvement was an extremely welcome development. He brought a superior analytic ability and wealth of knowledge to our meetings. He was, at all times, an active advocate for the school district’s- and most importantly—the children’s interest in safety, security and return to normalcy.

I must reiterate that this is the first time in my memory that we have had such active community participation by the district Superintendent in the Town. This is a very welcome development.  Dr. Kreutzer is at all times invited to sit with our Board as advisor and friend.


Frank V. Kelly, Esq.
Councilma, Town of Lewisboro
