With pride and excitement, I ask your readers, once again, to vote for First Selectman Carl Fortuna, Selectman Scott Giegerich, and Treasurer Bob Fish on Nov. 7.
Carl Fortuna has effectively led our town for the past six years. However, it may be more accurately characterized to say that he has shared a vision, charted a course, and successfully moved this town forward all while improving our schools, public safety, infrastructure, recreation, the business environment, and Town Hall. Furthermore, we still enjoy a mill rate that is one of the lowest in the state.
Carl is patient, deliberate, open-minded, and considerate. He brings key stakeholders to the table to ensure that the town benefits regardless of the project or issue.
When one looks around Old Saybrook today, one can’t help but see that much is happening. This is not done via happenstance, but rather in conjunction with the many boards and commissions filled by volunteers led by Carl in order to progress based on a cohesive plan.
Carl Fortuna is a solid and inclusive leader, a visionary, and a real asset to the townspeople of Old Saybrook.
As for me, I am a dad, husband, coach, mentor, friend, and middle school principal. I have served on boards and commissions for all of the 26 years that I have lived in Old Saybrook. I spent eight years on the Parks & Recreation Commission prior to serving as selectman for the past six years.
I wish to continue to serve our town and work with Carl to continue to make Old Saybrook one of the premier towns of all time! I encourage your readers to vote for Carl Fortuna, Scott Giegerich, and Bob Fish on election day, Nov. 7.
Selectman Scott M. Giegerich
