To the Editor:
I am writing this letter to urge the residents of Ridgefield to vote for Bob Hebert as our State Representative in November. As a mother and recently retired public-school teacher, the education and well-being of children is of the utmost importance to me, and the stakes couldn't be higher than they are right now. After 25 years in the classroom, I am extremely concerned about the direction public education is heading. State mandates bombard our public schools, with little to no funding to support them. Political agendas fuel curriculum, and many parents are concerned about what is being taught in schools.
Bob will work with our Board of Education to be sure he fights for what is best for Ridgefield Public Schools. As a father of 3 himself, Bob understands that nothing is more important than a strong home/school partnership for a child to thrive and succeed. He will fight for the rights of parents to continue to have a say in their children's education. Bob will be a voice for the parents in Ridgefield, rather than blindly voting across party lines in Hartford.
Bob Hebert will fight to maintain local control in Ridgefield. He will not allow political agendas to fuel his decisions, but rather, he will view each issue through the lens of how it affects Ridgefield, not Hartford. Ridgefield is a beautiful, quaint town and Bob will work hard to make sure it stays that way.
Whether it be serving on the Board of Selectman or delivering water to the residents of Ballard Green during the pandemic, Bob is always helping others. He is a man of his word, and he walks the walk. He is approachable, available, and always willing to listen. A vote for Bob is a vote for Ridgefield!
