Letter: Benefits to privatization
Re the possible privatization of the Concord School District’s food service (Monitor front page, April 3):
I know the current employees will fiercely defend their jobs, as they should; however, I am a local person employed by a private food service company. I have lived in New Hampshire (Salem, Derry, Concord and Laconia) my whole life. Soon I will have to commute to Massachusetts to get to work because my company’s account in central New Hampshire is closing. Privatization of Concord’s school cafeterias may mean some employees are let go, but it could also mean that the children get chefs with better skill sets, larger food varieties and better service. Believe it or not, we all have hearts too.
