From HELLONEWSCT.COM: Editorial: In My Opinion A Rare Endorsement
Redding, CT November 4, 2019:by Susan Winters, Publisher, (Please note that this is an editorial and is my own opinion!)
When you receive your ballot at the Community Center on Tuesday, November 5, you will have the opportunity to choose from many hard working and dedicated neighbors who wish to give service to our community. The Reddingites that are elected for the Boards will be volunteering to work, on top of their own jobs, long hours for no financial renumeration. I applaud and respect all of these wonderful volunteers for taking on the somewhat thankless but often rewarding challenge of doing this work.
Please Help Us Fight for Strong Leadership in Redding
Our Redding Board of Education candidates, Michael Hoffman and William Miller, are staunch proponents of maintaining educational excellence at the elementary and middle schools (which helps both our kids and our property values), while at the same time holding the line on excessive and unnecessary spending. Unfortunately, their Democrat opponents have not shown the same concern for lightening the burden on taxpayers.
Our Region 9 Board of Education candidate, Chris Hocker, is widely respected for his thoughtful, balanced approach to issues at Barlow during his previous terms on the Board. Neither Barlow nor the taxpayers can afford to lose a Board member of Chris's experience and stature.
And this leads to another important point about this year's Redding election: Democrats are quite openly trying to turn our local election into a referendum on national personalities and issues instead of focusing on local concerns. As Redding Republicans, we reject this misguided approach; our primary concern is to maintain and improve upon Redding's quality of life and values.
We believe that we have by far the strongest, best qualified slate of candidates for Redding's Boards of Education, candidates with proven experience who will concentrate on addressing our local educational issues as well as taxpayer concerns. But they are in serious danger of losing if we cannot run a strong campaign between now and the November 5 election to get our message out and make our candidates' qualifications known to the voters.
Will you help us with a generous contribution to the Redding Republican Town Committee of $100, $250, $500 or more*? Anything you can do will be of enormous assistance to our efforts over the next few weeks.
