Rodriguez for BOE


I am writing to endorse Frederick Rodriguez for Board of Education.

Mr. Rodriguez is running for public office for the first time, and as an expert in technology and cybersecurity, I believe he would be a great asset to the BOE.  

Frederick has an impressive work history, and with two young children, one of whom is currently attending Ridge Road, I am confident he will work hard to provide all students with the best and safest educational opportunities.

Vote Mike’s Team


This letter is in support of First Selectman Mike Freda and the entire North Haven Republican slate in the November election.

The team is made up of boards and commissions that have contributed in making North Haven one of the best towns in Connecticut. Our public safety, public works and schools provide excellent service to our residents while maintaining a very reasonable tax rate.

Mike Freda continues to bring economic development into our community, stabilizing our tax rate, which will continue for many years to come.

Please vote for “Mike’s Team” on Tuesday Nov. 5.

James X. DiCarlo
Chairman – Republican Town Committee

True advocate


Re-electing Patricia Brown for Board of Finance is an easy decision. Why? Because during her tenure she has reduced our taxes and fought back against over-development. Her extensive experience in finance throughout her career and success on the board is a win for our town.

As a resident for over 25 years and a community volunteer, Patricia has dedicated her time to the environment, social justice, HIV/AIDS and the Special Olympics.

Patricia's an advocate for the North Haven community and a champion for taxpayers.

I look forward to casting my ballot for Patricia Brown and hope you will too.

Brown for BOF


For 30 years, Pat Brown has developed, defended and managed multi-million-dollar budgets in medical schools, research centers, government facilities and universities. Since 2007, she has served on North Haven’s Board of Finance. She has volunteered for community and national organizations that are important to her. Sometimes Pat volunteers for educational, fun functions like the North Haven Earth Day event.

I am voting for Pat because she gets involved.
