To the Editor:

On behalf of the Trumbull Democratic Town Committee (TDTC), I would like to thank every Trumbull resident who came out to vote in the Special Election for the Board of Finance on July 22. With your support, Lainie McHugh was elected to the Board of Finance, bringing fresh ideas and balance to town government.

This was an important election. As you may recall, Trumbull Democrats had to go to court in order to require the Town to schedule the Special Election so that the people would decide, rather than an appoinment for the remainder of the vacant term. The court stipulated that an election would be held, and

Trumbull voters elected Lainie McHugh on July 22.

Lainie ran a positive campaign and she will work hard on the Board of Finance to establish budget priorities which enhance Trumbull’s quality of life. Beyond that, Lainie and all Trumbull Democrats will continue to advocate for reasonable sewer use fees and a long-term solution to Trumbull’s sewer treatment needs. We pledge to work together to find solutions that work for Trumbull. We want to put an end to the seemingly endless political war of words, as

Trumbull deserves results, not just rhetoric.

Thank you once again for placing your confidence in Lainie McHugh in the Special Election.

Tom Kelly

Chairman, TDTC
