In late January, some of our neighbors received a letter from AT&T saying that the telecommunications giant wanted to put a cell phone tower in Longbrook Park. Nobody in the neighborhood had heard a thing about it before those letters arrived, but we quickly learned that the Town had approved the plan the year before. Despite having the odds against us, our neighborhood came together and stopped the cell phone tower.
I was the first to speak publicly against the Longbrook Park cell phone tower and I am proud of the role that I played in ensuring that the integrity of our neighborhood was preserved. But the cell phone tower was not an isolated example of the misguided agendas of many of our elected officials. There seems to be a political culture in Town Hall that thinks it is okay to conduct the public’s business in smoke filled backrooms, hand out jobs and excessive benefits to political supporters, and to provide diminishing services with ever increasing tax bills.
While our campaign will be about more than Stratford’s broken politics, I promise you that I will do my best to unlock those doors in Town Hall and shine some light on what’s wrong with our town’s politics (and help find what we can do to fix it). But I can’t do it alone. I will need your help and I will need your vote.
If you’d like to join our campaign, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 203-275-9010. Together we can bring integrity, independence, and common sense back to Town Hall.
