To the Editor:
I would like to thank the many Trumbull residents who reached out to me in support of the State of the Town address given by First Selectman Tim Herbst. The results of the efforts of our First Selectman and his administration are inspiring. The Town's tax rate has been stabilized, the Grand List continues to grow and the pension fund has been addressed. Full-day kindergarten has finally been implemented and senior citizen tax relief has been doubled. As our town has been faced with unparalleled weather emergencies, we have reformed our emergency management systems to better protect residents, including the recent reforms brought to the Emergency Medical Service with the hiring of a new chief. These are just a few of the many outstanding accomplishments we have realized the last few years and help confirm the fact that Trumbull voters deserved better than the past and the town is indeed better off now than it was four years ago.
