Letters: I am Larry Hoffman and am a write-in candidate for school board

Icon viewers:

My name is Larry Hoffman and I am running as a write-in candidate for the Bluffton School Board.  

In August I became aware of a potential vacancy on the school board, with several friends and family members encouraging me to run for the open position.  

I believe this is a good fit with my experience and background.  I have joined the Ohio School Board Association (OSBA) to learn more about the duties and responsibilities of being a good board member.
