To the Editor:

I'd like to recommend an excellent, caring, energetic, experienced candidate for the New Milford Board of Education -- Bob Coppola.

He is a retired teacher with great experience, not only in the New Milford Sshool system, but also other area school systems.

He is a committed volunteer as a Lion Club member, active in programs at the New Milford Historical Society Museum and a Vietnam veteran who earned a Bronze Star.

Bob Coppola is a former member of the Town Council and the Board of Education.

Our children deserve a knowledgeable, experienced, caring individual in these next years with the challenges and changes to be faced for our school system.

We, the voters, have an opportunity to choose an excellent person, Bob Coppola, for the New Milford Board of Education.
