Vote Caldwell


I was appalled to see the letter to the editor from Mr. Fowler about how bad the Dems are.

To address Mr. Fowler’s passionate concern for the Democrats, and to be crystal clear, the North Haven Democratic Town Committee is the strongest it has been in decades.

Political change takes time; especially in a small, red town where dirty politics, half-truths and intimidation run rampant when the status quo is challenged. 

Peter Criscuolo has a tumultuous history in North Haven. DTC members have raised concerns regarding his character and motives and chose to move in a different direction.

I have publicly supported the fire department, along with Jennie Caldwell, in advocating and raising awareness in assessing vital services.

As a former Board of Education member, Jennie has extensive experience with our town government and detailed knowledge about the budget process.

She is not afraid to ask questions, research issues and speak up. With a background in health care administration, Jennie can bring a new perspective to the fire commission.

Jennie Caldwell was endorsed 2-1 by the North Haven DTC.  

I encourage all Democratic voters to vote in the primary on Tuesday, Sept. 10.

Fresh approach


I am writing in support of Jennifer Caldwell's candidacy for the Democratic nomination for the North Haven Fire Commission.

Jennifer is the official, party-endorsed candidate, and there will be a primary on Tuesday, Sept.10. I urge all North Haven Democrats to vote. All polling places will be open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Jennifer has the education, background and work experience to make an effective fire commissioner. Her extensive experience in the medical field makes her uniquely qualified given the fact that about 65 percent of all fire department calls are for emergency medical services.

Jennifer served six years on the North Haven Board of Education, and she understands the time commitment necessary to be a member of such an important commission.

In recent years, the fire department has been at the center of budgetary discussions. Jennifer’s service on the Board of Education has prepared her for the challenges of balancing the needs of a town department with concern for the burdens on our taxpayers.

Jennifer Caldwell is excited about the challenges ahead, and I am  confident that she will bring a fresh and vibrant approach, that is so desperately needed, to our fire commission.

Please vote on Sept.10.
