Nothing But a Winner

I would like to take this time to thank all the people who came out on Nov. 5 and voted for me in the recent town election. Some might say that I lost, but that is not so. When you have an opportunity to see so many old friends who came out to support you and meet so many new friends who supported me, then you can’t consider yourself anything but a winner.

I would like to express my appreciation to the North Branford Democratic Party for giving me the chance to be part of a great slate of Democratic candidates. I did not know any of the other Democratic candidates before we ran, and now I have the pleasure of having eight new friends.

I would like to wish all the newly elected Town Council members the very best as they lead our town during the next two years, in particular Mayor Robert “Bob” Viglione and Deputy Mayor Thomas “Tom” Zampano, two men I recently met and with whom I was very impressed.

I would also like to express a special thanks to my wife, Cecilia, and our children, Elizabeth, Ellenmary, Patrick, Catherine, and Amy for their unquestionable support and involvement in my campaign from the very beginning.

Finally, I encourage all the other members of the North Branford Democratic Party to not wait as long as I did to get involved and run for office. The North Branford Democratic Party as well as the Town of North Branford needs us now.
