To the Editor:

Whether at a school function, a school outing, back-to-school night (of which there were many over the 16-year span of our children's education), a town function, or Election Day at the polls, one bright star has stood out above all others. That bright star is Vicki Tesoro, a dedicated volunteer for the town of Trumbull for 20 years or more.

Vicki has always been approachable. No matter what her role, she greets everyone with a smile, is always willing to listen and suggest a resolution, and is always the friendly face in the room.

With 16 plus years rooted in our school system, she has first-hand knowledge of what our students need most. Vicki's most recent accomplishment has been a seat on our Town Council. She is a career volunteer with experience in numerous areas.

"The single most fervent participant of the PTA, from the time I was in first grade until I graduated from THS,” is our son’s account of Mrs. Tesoro. Knowledge of and long-term dedication to our town and its residents of all ages are qualities we feel make Vicki Tesoro exceedingly qualified to hold the position of first selectman.
