Having been involved in town government for several years I have come to understand that the greatest chance for immediate and effective change is from the top. I think we can all agree that change is what we need; and sooner rather than later.

The best agent for that change is Chris Tymniak. He has experience in town management, kids in the school system, owns a home, has immediate family in town, participates in youth sports and recreation programs and pays taxes. This gives Chris the better perspective in leading all of us to a brighter tomorrow. I ask you all to vote Chris Tymniak for first selectman this November.
