Electing a First Selectman with proven abilities in business and construction, and seasoned familiarity with our town government structure, gained from active involvement in it over a sustained period of time, would be especially valuable this year.
I am confident that, more than any other candidate, Paul Giusti has those abilities, as well as the knowledge and experience to lead the town through financially challenging times. His communication and team building skills, and his sustained commitment to the town, can continue to be of great benefit.
At a personal level, knowing that families can be presented with major challenges at any time, has given him a special capacity for empathy towards seniors and others faced with various special needs. He would be an able, compassionate and approachable leader in what has now become a demanding, full-time job and so, for all these reasons, I strongly support the candidacy of Paul Giusti.
