We would like to introduce the four candidates running for Town Council District 1 from Team Tesoro.

As a group, we all share a love of the town of Trumbull and a commitment to representing the interests and priorities of the residents in our district. Our backgrounds are diverse, but we all bring experience engaging with our community and advocating for our neighbors. We will build on our experience - whether as current members of the Town Council; as past presidents of the Nichols Improvement Association, the Trumbull PTA Council, the THS PTSA, and the THS marching band; or as members of Trumbull Citizens for Seven Districts – to represent our neighbors’ interests and priorities in our town government.

As Town Council candidates, we pledge the following:


  • We will represent all town residents fairly. We will work collaboratively with other elected officials, regardless of political party, when making decisions that affect our neighbors.

  • We will ensure transparency at all levels of government, and we will foster and be responsive to community input and feedback.

  • We will carefully review capital improvements and ensure fiscally-responsible spending.


We are excited to support Vicki Tesoro in her pledge to restore civility, collaboration, and transparency to Trumbull town government. Her diverse team, which includes unaffiliated candidates and former Republicans, all shares this commitment. We urge residents to learn more about Vicki Tesoro’s platform and the candidates on Team Tesoro at www.vickifortrumbull.com.  

We’ve enjoyed speaking to the hundreds of residents we’ve met during our time canvassing District #1 to introduce ourselves. Please vote Team Tesoro, Line A on November 7. Thank you.
