I want to take the opportunity to thank the residents of District 4 for voting for me two years ago and I hope I have earned your support for re-election on November 7.
As an unaffiliated candidate and part of the minority caucus, I have sometimes questioned if I have made an impact with the votes I have cast. But what I am sure of is my caucus’ effort to publish regular summaries in the Trumbull Times, hopefully they helped keep issues transparent. We tried our best to make decisions based on what was good for all of the voters not just the ones we thought voted for us. That is why I choose to remain an unaffiliated candidate; (1) I can’t control what goes on in Washington and Hartford but I can roll my sleeves up and try to make an impact on a local level. (2) I don’t see my neighbors or friends as a member of a political party but as Trumbullites. We all have a vested interest to keep our town safe, our schools the best and taxes affordable.
