what we believe

  • We can best achieve our mission through a strong, cohesive party and open, honest discussion and debate.

  • That the role of government is to play a proactive role in the improvement of our town and our citizens’ quality of life.

  • That we have a responsibility to provide for those who may need the kinds of support that is appropriate for the town to provide.

  • That providing a high-quality education system is essential to our children’s future and to maintaining our property values and our way of life.

  • Our elected and appointed representatives must operate with compassion and fiscal responsibility.

  • That we have a solemn responsibility to spend our taxpayers’ money wisely, and always with an eye to keeping tax rates low, consistent with delivery of high-quality municipal services.

  • In the open, fair and impartial operation of government for the benefit of all residents and affected parties.

  • In seeking only the government we need, but insisting on all the government we need.

“We seek to engage all of Trumbull in a true grassroots effort, and work hard for our candidates. If we work together, we can ensure Trumbull is a vibrant, family-centered community.”
