Directors the last four years and I am grateful to the have the
opportunity to be running for re-election this November. I have enjoyed
being your Deputy Mayor, working side by side in a leadership role with
Mayor Leo V. Diana. We, the Board of Directors have governed in a civil
and cooperative manner with our colleagues and with the citizens of
Manchester, putting party bickering aside to accomplish what is best for
everyone in our community.
This style of government was necessary in guiding the town through tough
economic times. We have been able to maintain vital services and
programs for our children, families, neighbors, and seniors. We will
work tirelessly to make sure public safety, education, the welfare of
our seniors, and economic growth remain a priority. As we continue to
face difficult financial times, we must still listen and respect each
other. In our town everyone’s voice counts. We all have a hand in the
navigation of Manchester’s future!

on what matters for Manchester. As a Board member and citizen, I also
would be thrilled if you re-elect my good friend, Leo V. Diana as our
