Strength and Capability

A true American Success story doesn’t come very often. Here in Killingworth, we surely have one. Francesco Lulaj is an American success story. He is a family man, loving father and husband, a great business owner, leader, and sincere friend.

The same traits that created this success story can now be applied to running the Town of Killingworth as first selectman. These are trying times in the State of Connecticut, and funding is slowly diminishing to our town. We need a first selectman with great foresight, leadership, and people management skills. We do not need an orchestra leader. We need a leader with the strength and capability to make the tough decisions as we move forward. We need a tough fiscal management style that will not continually erode the town savings accounts. The present course will mean higher property taxes for all of our residents, and the future is looking bleak if we stay on this same path.

We need Francesco Lulaj and his business skills to preserve the future of our town. Francesco will support priority-driven capital budgeting that will put the most critical projects in the forefront, and this will be done with the residents of Killingworth who pay the bills. Francesco will continually update the residents of our town as to what is happening in Town Hall. We do not have that now. Communication is the most important part of being a leader, and it is a two-way function.

I encourage your readers to join me in voting for Francesco Lulaj for Killingworth first selectman. He will do the job, and he will make the future tough decisions. We cannot continue to be complacent. Our town’s future is at stake.
