It’s Halloween and I know many of you will enjoy the third annual Truck or Treat event hosted by the Woodbridge Volunteer Fire Association. Thank you to our volunteer Firefighters for providing a fun and safe community event that is becoming a Woodbridge tradition!
Election Day is just around the corner on Tuesday, November 4. The Center Gym will be open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. for all Woodbridge voters. At the polling place, you will see that we have two voting districts in Woodbridge: some residents are in State Senatorial District 14 (incumbent Democratic Sen. Gayle Slossberg versus Republican challenger Matt Gaynor) and others are in State Senatorial District 17 (incumbent Democratic Sen. Joe Crisco versus Republican challenger Philip Tripp). All Woodbridge residents are in the 114th House District (incumbent Republican Representative Themis Klarides versus Democratic challenger Aldon Hynes). Also on the ballot are the Third Congressional District candidates (incumbent Democratic U.S. Representative Rosa DeLauro versus Republican challenger James Brown) and all statewide Constitutional offices.
Woodbridge residents turn out in higher than average numbers in both presidential and mid-term election years, but we can do better! Please don’t forget to vote.
Also in November, the Town is hosting a workshop to introduce the Woodbridge Energy Challenge. At this workshop you will hear about energy saving measures identified through home energy audits, and about solar installations. The workshop is on November 18 at 6:30 p.m. in the Center Gym. (Please note that the location was changed from the Town Library due to the high interest in this event.) You can register online at www.ctsolarchallenge.com/woodbridge. There will be another workshop in the spring.
