The following is a letter to the editor.
As a Trumbull resident, a taxpayer, town business owner, wife and mother of two students in the public school system, I felt a compelling need to run for office for a town I have called home for over 45 years. After much dialogue with my family, it was unanimously decided that I needed to take my civic responsibility to the level of elected office. Serving in public office provides the opportunity for me to use my business experience, creative talents, and my conscious moral compass to be a viable force for positive change in our community. The bottom line for me is to make Trumbull a better place to live, maintain its warm, picturesque, historic appeal, and instill a special affinity to raise a family in this community. I am not a “political” person, per say, but I certainly have my finger on the pulse on the culture of this town, which will allow me to be a strong public servant.
I am proud to say I am on the Timothy Herbst ticket because I want to be on a team that carries on the tradition of our town. Through his dedication, competency, and vision, he has created an atmosphere in our community that fosters the basic principles of respect and decency. I want to partner with him to maintain our sense of community by increasing civic participation.
If you elect me as your public servant, I will serve this town and the needs of the its people proudly! I bring a large measure of enthusiasm, creativity, and a strong work ethic to this position. Therefore, I appreciate your support during our next election. By voting the Republican ticket, you will help me foster a promising future for our town.
