If you are looking for endorsements, you won’t find it here. We won’t tell you how you should vote, though we can’t stress enough how important it is that you do go to the polls Nov. 5. The persons elected will make decisions that have an immediate bearing on your everyday life. Each of these offices, from first selectman to Zoning Board of Appeals, is important. We hope we have done our job in letting you know who the candidates are and where many of them stand on some of the most pressing issues.
When it comes to the race for Trumbull’s top office, you will choose between two candidates who we believe care about their hometown and want to make it better. First Selectman Timothy Herbst is a dynamic and gifted politician and one of the hardest working. Martha Jankovic-Mark is an intelligent and thoughtful Town Council member, who has devoted countless hours to the town.
