Letter to the Editor: Republican Endorses Democrat Mattson as Most Qualified Lyme First Selectman Candidate

An Open Letter to Lyme residents and business owners:

I would like to offer my whole hearted endorsement of Steve Mattson for First Selectman in Lyme.

After serving Lyme for many years on the Board of Selectman, as well as on many other town boards and committees it is clear to me that Steve has the unparalleled credentials necessary to lead our town.

His significant prior corporate and business experience has only further prepared him for the continued fiscal management of our Town during the ongoing crisis in our State’s budget. This experience will also help in maintaining a strong and articulate voice as he continues to work with our State representatives.

Having personally worked alongside him during my time as Lyme’s Emergency Management Director, I know that he has the temperament to manage emergencies, and work effectively with our emergency-management personnel and our Fire and Ambulance services.

For the good of Lyme, I endorse Steve Mattson as the most qualified candidate for First Selectman. As a registered Republican, I believe the health and safety of Lyme will be best served by Steve, regardless of party affiliation.
