Letter to the Editor: Read, Kerr Will Improve Results, Keep Control Local

To the Editor:

During my 15 years on the Old Lyme Board of Finance, I have served with both Jude Read and Chris Kerr.  I have watched their collaborative approach to questions raised.  I have seen them listen to townspeople’s concerns and then respond to their inquires in a timely fashion.

Old Lyme Democrats favor state grants and regionalization as the lynch pins of town government.  Republicans believe in fiscal restraint and careful planning as their chosen path to future success for the Town of Old Lyme and it’s (sic) residents.  More and better prioritizing of potential projects will lead to improved outcomes – on time, on budget, and on scope.  Read and Kerr believe that big decisions should be made by elected officials, not appointed committees.

Jude Read, as First Selectman, and Chris Kerr as Selectman, will work diligently for Old Lyme and it’s (sic) residents and fight hard to maintain local control.  They keep Old Lyme’s best interest at heart.

Old Lyme needs, strong forward-thinking leaders who will make careful, well-informed decisions based on our town’s needs.  That’s why I will vote for the Old Lyme Republican team of Jude Read and Chris Kerr in November.


Janet Sturges,
Old Lyme.
