To the Editor:

I first met Marty Landgrebe while serving on the New Milford Board of Education.

He was a Republican and I was a Democrat; we were board members who viewed many things differently but knew the children of New Milford always came first.

During our tenure together we discussed many different things and I became good friends with Marty.

Over the years I have learned why Marty is such a standout guy and a very successful as probate judge.

He is thoughtful, compassionate and smart. If you want the best probate judge for our town, then vote for Marty on Aug. 10, in the Republican primary.
