Trumbull Councilwoman Supports Rutigliano for State Rep

Suzanne Testani is the vice chair of the Town Council.

Over the past few weeks, I’ve had the pleasure of walking District 1 with David Rutigliano, our Republican Candidate for State Representative in the 123rd district.  David is running for the seat previously held by long-time State Representative T.R. Rowe.  I have been impressed by the response from Trumbull residents to David’s message of fiscal conservatism, business growth, and keeping our educated young people in our town.  Clearly, Dave is the best person to represent us in Hartford as we work to change the current administration and their failing policies.

While walking, it has become apparent that some of our residents are not aware of the redistricting and the new voting locations.  I strongly encourage all residents to go to www. Trumbull-ct.gov.  Look under Town Hall and Departments and click on Registrar of Voters.  There you will find the new voting district map to ensure that you are aware of the new voting location. 

Be sure to exercise your right to vote on November 6th.

What is his plan for "keeping our educated young people in town"?

Maybe I missed something, but why is the burden on the citizens to go online and look up their polling place after the unnecessarily radical redistricting that the Town Council pushed through? It seems to me that our town government and our registrar of voters should be making a lot more noise than they are to be sure that residents know where to vote in this very important presidential election.

Fiscal conservatism, Suzanne? Guess he hasn't seen the bills from No. Nichols sewer construction - the hiring of mega-bucks T&B along with the questionable need to re-design some of the sewers. Thanks for the laugh! Carol ps: Joan's point is excellent. After the outrageous (political) gerrymandering of districts in Trumbull, it is up to the gov't of Trumbull to make sure every citizen knows where they vote . . . while we still have the right to vote in Trumbull!

Nice work Suzanne...its important for Rutigliano to get at least one vote! I look forward to our next meeting

Oh that's right. This is the incompetent restructuring that was done to save Trumbull taxpayers $8,000 and for no other reason. This was done by the same FS who just cost us $75,000 through his incompetence as a concert promoter. No SH** that people don't know where to vote.

I learned absolutely nothing about this guy nor any evidence as to why he's capable of following through on what he says he wants to do.

Susanne, what a lame and empty endorsement. Tell us something useful about your candidate other than how "impressed" you've been at the response of residents. Is there anything that stands out about this guy except that he's got an R next to his name. And this one is hilarious: "While walking, it has become apparent that some of our residents are not aware of the redistricting and the new voting locations." SOME of our residents? Maybe if the Republicans had not shoved through this idiotic redistricting plan, we wouldn't have relocated so many people and ended up with non-equal representation. 14 out of 15 speakers at the public hearing on redistricting said DON'T DO THIS, but every one of Tim's Republican majority - save Mr. Pia - voted in lock-step for this ludicrous plan. Now we face longer lines at the reduced number of poll locations and great confusion for many voters, just as we expect high turn-out in this important presidential election. Of course that's what Republicans love - reduced turn-out. Oh and that $8000 savings will really help if we apply it to the $77,000 wasted on the concert debacle this year. BTW, that $8000 savings - if it materializes - represents approx. .006% of our town budget. Way to go Bill Holden! Thanks for keeping your eye on the prize!
