My name is Vicki Tesoro and I am seeking re-election as your Town Council Representative for District 3. I have lived in Trumbull for 22 years and both my daughters are graduates of the Trumbull Public School system. A Town volunteer for over 20 years, I have received awards for developing the Trumbull High School Underage Drinking Forum, a program being adopted across the State. I am a graduate of UConn and hold a Masters in Taxation from Pace University.
As a Town Council representative for the past two years I supported responsible spending, strong public safety, senior tax relief, and a quality school system. I fought against the Republican plan that resulted in an unnecessary reduction of voting districts and polling places.
Trumbull deserves a Town Council that is balanced, not an arm of the First Selectman’s office. The last thing Trumbull needs is one Party rule by either Party. One Party rule leads to party oriented decision making and the absence of thoughtful discussion. That is bad for Trumbull.
I will continue to fight for a responsible education budget, targeted tax relief for our most needy seniors, a realistic and fair road paving plan, a return to civility and balance in government.
We have a two-sided ballot this year. When voting on November 5 please complete both sides of the ballot.
It is my privilege to serve Trumbull and I hope to do so again. Please support me and the Democratic team on November 5.
