Robust and Thriving

In a world that often seems to be coming apart at the seams, I look at Killingworth and see a smoothly and efficiently run government that on a daily basis eschews the dramatic for the practical. And while that may look easy, it is not. It takes many hours of working with boards and commissions, regional and state agencies, and representatives of both parties. It takes knowledge gathered from years of experience serving on various town entities.

It takes the skills of an orchestra conductor to pull together finely tuned, bipartisan support to get things done in the best way possible for Killingworth. And that’s a good thing.

Killingworth’s bipartisan Board of Finance has worked responsibly to keep our town’s financial status solid and our mill rate almost level. That is also a good thing.

Transparency in government is supported by First Selectman Cathy Iino’s biweekly column in The Source, monthly column in the Krier, and almost weekly morning coffee chats at convenient town locations. The first selectman’s door is always open, and Board of Selectmen, Board of Finance, Board of Education, and committee and commission meetings are open to the public by law. And that’s a good thing too.

Killingworth is better than okay, it is robust and thriving. That doesn’t mean anyone in Town Hall is complacent. There is always a future to prepare for and improvements to be made. First Selectman Cathy Iino, Selectman Louis Annino, Jr., and the Democratic team work at it every day.

I encourage your readers to give them their votes on Nov. 5. It takes a talented and experienced team to run a town in a manner that makes us all feel secure and proud, and that is a wonderful thing to have.
