Beth and Tony are both good people, but we need to choose a First Selectman with the most experience and competence. We are told that Tony, the Republican candidate, understands “business” and has an ear for “finance”. To those of us who watch or attend Board of Selectmen meetings, the reality is that Tony Anastasio echoes back what other people – other Selectmen, presenters, professionals, or staff – have just said. It’s an illusion of competence. Conversely, Beth has over 25 years of experience in municipal governance in Woodbridge and has proved her competence over and over again. Yes, Beth Heller has the skills to bring out the best in this community and the imagination to lead us into the future.
