I laughed when I saw the cartoon of Senator Musto fixing the Hillcrest School pool with duct tape. I thought it showed that he was willing to do whatever it took to get the pool fixed right. As it turned out, he did! And now Trumbull doesn’t just get a patch job.
It’s great to have someone representing Trumbull who not only makes promises about improving our town better but also delivers. Two years ago Senator Musto promised to help fix the pool. It’s our only indoor pool, and it’s used year-round for swim teams, senior exercises, swim lessons and other things. Senator Musto asked the state to give Trumbull $375,000 to help. But when the bids finally came in this year and that wasn’t enough he got another $125,000 this month. Now we can do the pool right and make it last even longer. We also don’t have to use town property tax money to do it. He even got the state to fund renovations to the Senior Center so they could have a working kitchen. When is the last time we had a state official get us any money for anything?
Senator Musto doesn’t just make vague promises about making things better. With the pool and the other things he’s helped with around town he has proven that he not only promises to get things done, he actually does them.
