Dear editor,

My friend Ron Covelli is a candidate for District 33 (Marathon) County supervisor.  He is a long-time resident of our district who cares about the values and well-being of our families.

Ron is a quality engineer with a background in data analysis, and process and procedure improvements. He served our country as a non-commissioned officer in the United States Air Force.

Ron has a long and distinguished record of service to our community. He is a former WAYSA and high school varsity soccer coach, high school softball coach, Scout Master, and Marathon County foster parent.

Ron has served his church community as council vice president and endowment fund committee chairman.

Ron is a member of the Wausau American Legion Post 10.

Ron will respect all age groups, genders, ethnicities and backgrounds equally. He will support open and honest government, and civil and respectful debate.

I am confident that Ron will be a reliable conservative voice on the Marathon County Board.

Sincerely,

Bruce Bohr of Marathon
