Here in Trumbull it is the beginning of the local political season. Over the past week our local political parties have held their nominating conventions. These conventions are an opportunity for those running for elected office to articulate their vision for the future of our town, and to find common ground within their respective town committee. Regardless of whether you’re affiliated with a political party or not, these Trumbullites should be congratulated for stepping up and volunteering for their community.
While we are on the topic of conventions, one of which caused me take pause. The keynote speaker at the Trumbull Democratic convention, Middletown Mayor Dan Drew. To be clear, Trumbull Democrats can choose whomever they want to speak at their meeting, but it is concerning which elected official and current gubernatorial candidate they chose to present and champion the Trumbull Democratic Party’s values at their convention.
