The most qualified person to lead the Town of Woodbridge is current First Selectman Ellen Scalettar and voters would be wise to return her to office on Election Day, Monday, May 4th. This sentiment was repeated many times Sunday by some of the state’s most accomplished and influential leaders.
More than 60 Scalettar supporters gathered at the home of Carolyn and Barry Wolf on Sunday to hear from Lieutenant Governor Nancy Wyman, U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro, New Haven Mayor Toni Harp, state Senator Gayle Slossberg, and Weston First Selectman Gayle Weinstein – each of whom knows and admires the work of Woodbridge First Selectman Ellen Scalettar.
Lieutenant Governor Wyman recalled Scalettar’s outstanding work as a freshman legislator when she took on the tobacco lobby and won passage of a bill to ban smoking in public buildings. Representative DeLauro commented on Scalettar’s extensive background and experience as an attorney for the EPA, legislator, and high-level state policy director that make her exceptionally qualified to continue leading the town.
State Senator Gayle Slossberg praised Scalettar’s first term achievements as First Selectman, including approval for overdue renovations at Beecher Road School and final agreement to earn a $3 million grant for a cutting-edge municipal microgrid.
Scalettar said she was “deeply honored to have the support of these extraordinary leaders and delighted they came to Woodbridge to promote our campaign.”
“As First Selectman, I am dedicated to Woodbridge and its continuing excellence,” Scalettar continued. “I look forward to continuing my work with dedicated, volunteer members of boards and commissions, outstanding Town employees, and all residents to preserve our town’s heritage and the richness of life in Woodbridge”
“Going forward, we will create a vibrant and innovative Town for the future,” Scalettar said.
