The Milford Board of Education voted to name Robert Satti a new member, filling the unexpired term of Democrat George Gensure in the third district.

Gensure resigned recently because he got a job offer out of state and decided to take it.

Democratic Town Committee Chairman Rich Smith described Satti as a “great guy” who has been involved in Scouting and other community activities and served on the city’s ethic’s board.

Satti is a lawyer who works for the state’s attorney’s office, and Smith said he is “more than qualified” to serve on the school board.

City Clerk Joanne Rohrig swore Satti in at Monday night’s Board of Education meeting.

Board Chairman Susan Glennon pointed out that Satti has a long history of parent involvement.

She said he has served as a referee for local sports, and joked, “We made need that every once in a while.”
