Dan Brosgol completed his last regular meeting of the Bedford School Committee on Tuesday, recognizing that “I was an extremely small cog in a very large machine.”

Dan Brosgol completed his last regular meeting of the Bedford School Committee on Tuesday, recognizing that “I was an extremely small cog in a very large machine.”

Brosgol, who served three terms of three years each, will join the Select Board after votes are counted in the March 9 Town Election. He is unopposed on the ballot.

“I’m a believer in this town and the work that we do,” Brosgol said, expressing appreciation to current and former School Committee members and professional leadership.

Members of the committee offered personal tributes. Brad Morrison thanked Brosgol for “being an amazing colleague and friend and a helpful thinking partner in so many ways.”

Sarah Scoville said she will miss “problem-solving with you,” and Sheila Mehta-Green lauded “being that empathetic ear and asking the tough questions” and Brosgol’s knowledge of local government and policies. 

Sarah McGinley noted that there are “few people in Bedford who have given so much of themselves to this town.”

The professional leadership joined in the praise. School Superintendent Cliff Chuang said Brosgol always has been “responsive,” and praised their “working relationship and communication.” 

Assistant Superintendent Dr. Tricia Clifford thanked him for supporting the administration.

Several members used the word “passion” to describe Brosgol’s relationship with them. 

“I will miss your passion for this job and for the children and the teachers and the Bedford Public Schools,” Scoville said.

McGinley also acknowledged Brosgol’s wife Elizabeth, who attended the meeting in person, and noted the “big commitment from your family.”

In his remarks, Brosgol also thanked his wife and five children for “giving me the go-ahead to keep at it.”

Brosgol will be succeeded by Angel Pettitt, who is also running unopposed.
