To the Editor:

I’m Tony Scinto and I am running for re-election for Town Council in New District 2. I was first elected to the Town Council in 2007 and I currently serve as the Vice Chairperson of the Finance Committee and on the Rules & Research Committee. Over the past six years, I have really enjoyed reaching out to constituents and helping them in a wide variety of issues. District 2 is a unique district that forms a U-Shape around the border of Bridgeport. The district contains a large amount of our commercial development and I have worked hard with our residents to ensure that our commercial and residential areas peacefully co-exist. Specifically, I am working with residents on the Magnet School traffic on Old Town Road, and with off-campus housing issues with the surrounding colleges.

I am proud of the accomplishments of the Republican team. Working together, we have kept taxes low and we continue to maintain a strong commitment to the education of our children. We have implemented all-day kindergarten, also made a comprehensive investment in technology and security measures for our schools. I am proud to serve our residents in the old District 7 and now the New District 2 as your council representative and I ask for your support on Nov. 5.
