  • Candidates in NS with proven records deserve votes

    Candidates for the top two offices of first selectman and selectman in North Stonington are Republican with the exception of incumbent Mark Donahue. The loser of the first selectman race drops down with his votes and is included in the selectman race where he and three other candidates will split that vote. There lies the importance in carefully voting this election.

    Nick Mullane has a long history of town service. Although he holds some positions with which I disagree, his dedication to town and trustworthy management is undeniable. Of the top two candidates, Nick is the best choice.

    Brett Mastroani, running for selectman, is a local businessman and a leader of the North Stonington Business Association. As a member of the School Building Committee for four years, vice chairman of the Economic Development Committee for three years and serving on the Fire House Building Committee, Brett’s voluntary service to the town is extensive.

    Mark Donahue is the sole Democrat and currently serves as a selectman. No one prepares himself better for meetings nor has a better handle on the fiscal health of our town. Prior to our electing him as a selectman, Mark chaired the board of finance during which we passed the budget on the first referendum three years in a row — a testimony to his skill in leadership and finance.

    Three incumbent candidates running for the board of finance and worthy of your vote are the current chair, Republican Dan Spring, Democrat Brent Woodward and unaffiliated member Mike Ergo. These men have a proven record of service in government, have volunteered on several committees and have served us well on the board of finance.

    Irrespective of party affiliation, we all want candidates who have proved they are willing to serve and serve well. These candidates deserve that vote.
