To the Editor:
Many people in Trumbull and throughout our state and country shy away from local voting, simply because they don’t like ‘politics,’ or they don’t believe their one vote will make a difference. They have resigned themselves to allow others to decide their future. The truth is, in many ways, local elections impact your daily life more closely than national elections. Local elected officials make very personal decisions for you. As our representatives we empower them to decide the path of the education system for our children, the infrastructure of our community, development and conservation of our land. They formulate the direction of town spending, and make decisions on balancing the needs of a diverse community.
