I grew up in Trumbull and about six months ago my wife and I moved back to town. We rejoined my immediate and extended family here with the hopes of settling down and starting a family of our own. As someone who has been frustrated with what has been going on in this country politically it was important to me to become active in my community. You can either complain or you can do something. I probably have just complained too often in the past.
I wasn't sure what to expect from local politics but I certainly didn't expect what I found: Trumbull as a microcosm for what is happening nationally. Despite local politics having little to do with the national issues that are so often used to divide us, and both parties being in favor of the same things: low taxes, good education, and a safe and pleasant place to live, the situation here clearly mirrors what is sadly happening across the country.
