I am grateful for the opportunity to lead the Redding Republican Town Committee the next two years and look forward to working with all our members, including our new slate of officers, to invigorate our party and the Republican brand in Redding today.
I believe government can provide value, particularly at the local level. Redding Republicans serve our community best when we focus on providing necessary services in a fiscally responsible way, while recognizing the needs of all our citizens. I am excited to increase the RTC's visibility and to identify and support candidates for elected and appointed office who will approach governing with common sense, an open mind and a willingness to work collaboratively to get things done for Redding,
2016 Redding RTC Endorsed Candidates
RTC Meetings are scheduled for the fourth Thursday of each month, 7:30pm at Town Hall (except for November due to Thanksgiving.)
John Reilly is one of our newest RTC members, having
previously been an unaffiliated voter. He is also seeking election to the
Redding Board of Education, having been nominated in last months caucus.
John and his wife Lisa chose to raise their two daughters in
Redding after careful consideration of all other surrounding towns. John hopes
to continue improving our top-rated schools so that other families will also
choose to live here. After growing up in Trumbull, John moved to Maryland
and later California. In 2004 John returned to Connecticut where he met his
wife, Lisa and embarked on a career in insurance. For the last 5 years he has
worked for the John M. Glover Agency. John is a graduate of Loyola University
in Maryland and Fairfield Prep.
Of becoming a Redding Republican, John says, "While relatively new
to Redding, I'm not new to the common sense ideas that are the trademarks of
the Republican party: fiscal responsibility and conservative
values. I joined the RTC to align myself with like-minded individuals."
