To the Editor:

As Election Day approaches, it’s time to separate facts from rhetoric. Tim Herbst has stabilized taxes, has implemented full-day kindergarten and has held the line on unnecessary spending. Those are the facts. Further, he displayed strong leadership during Superstorm Sandy and Storm Nemo (the record blizzard) by taking the necessary steps to get Trumbull back to normal as quickly and safely as possible while keeping the populace continuously informed on the progress of the recovery.

Tim Herbst has done an outstanding job, without question. He and his team deserve to be re-elected on Nov. 5. Let’s keep a good thing going.
