The following letter was submitted by Westport resident Martin Yellen, former chairman of the Westport Conservation Commission:
I am writing this letter in support of Jennifer Tooker for the Westport Board of Education. I have worked with Jennifer for the past two-and-a-half-years on the Conservation Commission where I was chairman. Jennifer always showed a remarkable ability to stay focused on the key issues and to work with the other commissioners to come up with the best solutions for what were many times complicated and controversial issues.
She took her work very seriously and provided an intelligent and rational approach to problem solving. Her communication skills are excellent, honed by over 20 years working in the marketing and communication industry.
As a mother with three children in the school system, she is directly involved in ensuring that Westport provides the best education to our children with the most efficiency to eliminate waste and to streamline the process. I believe Jennifer will make an outstanding member of the Westport Board of Education.
