Vote for Bill Foote and Bill Kassler for Bedford School Board

To the Editor:

I have been honored to serve Bedford over the past six years as a member of its School Board.

As I wind down my final term, I have paid close attention to the writings and discussions of each of the candidates for school board. I will be voting for Bill Kassler and Bill Foote.

Bill Kassler is a long-term resident of Bedford who has served the community in many ways. He understands the value of public education in Bedford and will support it. But he also understands that appropriate fiscal discipline is required. I believe he would be a valuable addition to the board.

I have worked with Bill Foote for the last three years on the school board. We worked closely together on two collective bargaining agreements. His perspective has been a welcome addition to the board. He doesn’t come to meetings with an agenda. Rather, he carefully listens to all perspectives, and thoughtfully arrives at reasonable conclusions.

Please join me in supporting Bill Kassler and Bill Foote for the Bedford School Board.
