The political season has begun, and the Democratic Town Committee has opened its Campaign Headquarters in Woodbridge to support the candidacy of Beth Heller for First Selectman and the Democratic slate of candidates. The municipal election will be held Monday May 1st.
Democrats Host Brunch Event April 2 – The Democrats also hosted a Campaign Brunch Event, on Sunday April 2nd at the home of local supporters. The Honorary Host Committee for the event included US Senator Richard Blumenthal, US Senator Chris Murphy, and Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro.
At the event Beth Heller expressed her appreciation of everything our federal delegation is doing to represent the people of Woodbridge in Washington, “Now more than ever, our elected representatives make us proud of our state and remind us that we have a duty to care for one another and protect the most vulnerable members of society. I know many join me in thanking Richard, Chris, and Rosa for their leadership and service.”
Ms. Heller and her team of candidates for office in Woodbridge will focus on working across the aisle, seeking bi-partisan cooperation, and building consensus to tackle local issues, especially those that have divided the town in past years. “I have always believed that town government is at its best when it is more collaborative than partisan. In these challenging economic times, and as state and federal funding to Woodbridge continues to shrink, we cannot say for sure what the future holds. My team and I will advocate for the best outcomes, while planning decisively for ways to mitigate impact on our Town should we face a worst-case budget scenario. I welcome your ideas for how we might best achieve this together.”
Democrats Celebrate Headquarters Grand Opening March 12 – Earlier in March, the party opened it’s Campaign Headquarters at 180 Amity Road in the office space above the former Wheeler’s Restaurant.
Ms. Cusick said Democrats were clearly enthusiastic and engaged, but that there was also a clear need for local Democrats to work toward getting the strongest possible voter turnout. “In Woodbridge, our municipal election is unusual because it takes place on a Monday in May. We will work hard to get our message out, make our case, and remind residents that every vote counts. Our team is focused on bringing the community together to hear every voice. We are particularly eager to hear from people who may be new to civic involvement. Come get involved, the Democrats welcome you!” said Cusick.
