A Deep Commitment

I am voting “Yes” in Clinton May 10, on both the town and school budget referendums, and I would like to explain my vote.

I have no children in the schools. I have no family working in town government. I have no family working in the schools.

What I have is a deep commitment to the health and wellbeing of this beautiful little town and all the people who live in it. I believe in investing in my community and the public services that define a democracy.

I am delighted and fortunate to be living in Clinton, on the Connecticut Riviera, where a fine Police Department and Fire Department stand at the ready; where the schools are staffed by dedicated professionals; where the services of town government are extensive and helpful.

Of course there is room for improvement, but underfunding programs is not the way to make positive change.

I encourage my fellow residents of Clinton to vote “Yes” on our budgets, and join me in volunteering to serve in town government.
