To the Editor:
There is a special election for the Board of Finance on July 22. I am writing this letter in support of Lainie McHugh, the Democratic candidate in this election. Lainie is a long-time community volunteer in Trumbull and I am proud to call her my friend. For years she encouraged Trumbull elected officials, Democrats and Republicans alike, to make informed and educated decisions for our community. She is responsible for developing a town wide non-partisan program to educate our citizens about both the Education and Town budget process. Lainie is the consummate volunteer. Her advocacy has only to do with what is right for our Town and nothing to do with any personal agenda. She stands for responsible priorities, financial transparency, and an informed community.
