To The Editor:
I am splitting my vote this year and voting for whom I believe are the best candidates from both the Democrat and Republican slate. My first choice for Town Council is Carol Anest. The reason I will vote for Carol is because she has shown me that she cares about our community, she always takes my phone calls, she answers my emails and I know I can count on her when needed. Carol has been actively involved in our Newington community for the last 30 years. Prior to serving on the Town Council and Board of Education; she was a member on the Town Plan and Zoning Commission for 9 years, two as Vice Chair. In addition, she has served as town council liaison to the Commission on Aging and Disabled, the Youth Adult Council and the Economic Development Commission. Carol has shown true leadership as the majority leader working on the town budget with Town Councilors from both political parties, compromising when necessary while speaking out for the programs she felt best served the needs of all citizens. I believe a Town Councilor should be approachable and available when any citizen has an issue or problem. Thank you Carol! Along with Carol Anest for Town Council, I am also asking Newington voters to support Chris Miner, Gail Budrejko, Diana Casasanta Serra and Michael Camillo for Town Council.
