A Positive, Energetic Attitude

Jamie Young would be a great selectman for Killingworth. She is an attorney who has experience in industry as well as state government, having served as associate legal counsel to then-Governor Jodi Rell and in the Department of Energy & Environmental Protection under Governor Dannel Malloy. She has a very positive, energetic attitude and is a joy to work with.

She and her husband Brian have lived in Killingworth for 23 years. She has been active in several local organizations including the Killingworth Women’s Organization and Killingworth Volunteer Fire Company Auxiliary, and she is dedicated to conserving Killingworth’s environment. I know the family and have served on the Zoning Board of Appeals with Brian for many years. They have three boys—one of whom is a student director of the Killingworth Land Conservation Trust—and together are a delightful and respected family.

First Selectman Cathy Iino has been actively supporting Jamie’s candidacy and says “she would be a terrific selectman. No one is more diligent than she is about getting all the facts and considering the various angles of a project.” The fact that Cathy is so enthusiastic about Jamie also means that a transition to a new administration would be a very smooth one—a significant benefit for the town.

On Nov. 2, I encourage your readers to join me in voting for Jamie Young and Lou Annino, Jr., for Board of Selectmen. If they would prefer, absentee ballot applications are now available at Town Hall and on line at
