Patient and Kind

I am writing to you today in support of Chuck Tiernan for probate judge for the communities of Branford and North Branford. My first experience with Chuck was when I started as the corresponding secretary for the Democratic Town Committee (DTC) in North Branford. I was new to the position and fumbling a bit. Chuck didn’t know me at all but was the first person to respond to any of my emails searching for answers. We became more acquainted and I started to reach out to him directly for help. He was always available (even for the smallest problems) and gave me wonderful guidance. He was patient and kind in every experience I encountered with him. I felt so comfortable with his ability to connect effortlessly and provide me with the answers.

Having had this experience with Chuck, I think back to when our family had to deal with Frank Forgione. Frank had this very same demeanor and made our experience with the Probate Court positive, stress-free and enjoyable. Although we will miss Frank, I could not think of a better person to carry on and serve the people of Branford and North Branford in the same dignified and respectful manner.

Everyone in our family fully supports Chuck Tiernan for probate judge and we do so with enthusiasm and excitement.
