The top issue you will address if elected: (50 words or less) - Irresponsible zoning decisions. I will fight to roll back the runaway zone changes and radical text amendments that have been rammed through in the last two years that have allowed nearly a thousand new apartments to flood into Trumbull.
What other issues do you feel are important in this election? (50 words or less) - As a Planning & Zoning Commissioner from 2010-19, including a term as Chairman, and an Inland Wetlands Commissioner from 2009-present, I have demonstrated sound land use judgment and effective leadership. I look forward to returning to P&Z.
