Sample Personal Reference Letter

I am writing to recommend Ariel Jones for a position with the Town of Smithtown. I have known Ariel since she was a child and she is a highly qualified candidate for a position in town government. She has lived in Smithtown for most of her life, she is involved in her local community, her church, and her children's schools.

Ariel has shown her commitment to the town as a Member of the Board of Appeals, and as an active participant in many community endeavors.

Ariel would be a tremendous asset to the town and I recommend her to you without reservation. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Mary Smith
