Members of the Trumbull Republican Town Committee elected Jack Testani to be their chairman Tuesday, March 22.

Testani, who currently sits as an elected member of the Trumbull Town Council, has been a resident of Trumbull since 1989.

Along with his wife Suzanne, who currently serves as vice chairman of the Trumbull Board of Education, Testani has been involved in the Trumbull Republican Party for more than a quarter century.

Testani spoke about his goals for the next two years Tuesday night which include: fundraising, creating a message campaign with Trumbull voters, revitalizing a voter outreach initiative in order to register more residents to the Trumbull Republican Party, and giving back to the community, through support of organizations such as Trumbull Community Women and The Kennedy Center.

I believe the election this past November proved the people of Trumbull want a government that is fiscally responsible and accountable to the public,” Testani said.  “They want a quality of life that is superb. They want a town where they can live, work and raise their families. They want a town they can be proud to call home.  

“I look forward to my continued support of First Selectman Tim Herbst, along with all our elected officials, who are working tirelessly to make sure the promise of Trumbull becomes the reality of Trumbull."

Testani will serve a two-year term. This is his second time serving as the TRTC Chair.  Testani’s first stint leading the TRTC was 2009-2014.

First Selectman Tim Herbst said Testani has earned a reputation across Connecticut as a strong Republican leader. 

“In 2009, he led a Republican comeback that ended 30 years of one-party rule here in Trumbull,” Herbst said. ”He is a strong fundraiser and excellent spokesman for our party. 

“I wouldn't be the First Selectman today if it wasn't for his leadership as the Republican Town Chairman in 2009,” he added. ”I consider him a good friend and I am thrilled that Jack has been re-elected to continue the job we were elected to do."
