To all the candidates for the recent election — thank you for your willingness to serve the residents of the great town of Southington.
In this day and age, it is amazing to me that Southington residents have so many options for virtually every local position! To the incumbent candidates and those who elected not to run during this election cycle — thank you for your past service.
Despite recent issues, I appreciate what you have done to make, and keep, Southington strong! To those who are victorious — congratulations! Thank you for accepting the challenge and making the commitment to our town.
Please make a concerted effort to listen to the views of the opposition party (and independents) and realize that they, too, were elected by the people of Southington. Southington, and its elected officials, should expect better than the partisan politics of recent years.
John Taillie, Southington
