REPUBLICANS SEEKING CANDIDATES TO FILL POSTS ON TOWN BOARDS AND RTC

The Weston Republican Town Committee (RTC) is interviewing candidates for a vacancy on the Republican Town Committee, the town Library Board and the Board of Ethics.  Republicans who would like to be considered for one of these positions should contact Katia Colaprico, chairman of the RTC’s Candidate Recruitment Committee, at WESTONrtc.ct@gmail.com.

The 25-member RTC represents the town’s approximately 1,800 registered Republicans in political affairs, supports the election of Republican candidates, and screens and endorses Republican volunteers for the town’s principal boards and commissions.  The RTC meets the second Tuesday of every month at 7:30 p.m. in Town Hall.

The Library Board writes and implements policies, oversees long range planning, and works closely with the library director in preparing the annual budget.  Each trustee is an advocate for the library and its staff. The nine-person board meets the first Tuesday of each month at 7:45 p.m. in the library.

The Board of Ethics consists of five members, none of whom hold any elective or appointed Town office.  The Board members receive, investigate, hear testimony, and render advisory opinions to town boards and commissions and when appropriate the Board of Ethics makes recommendations to the Board of Selectmen on alleged violations of the Town of Weston Code of Ethics.  The Board only meets when the need arises.

For more information on the Weston RTC, please visit www.westonrtc.org or attend a meeting.

 

State Rep. Adam Dunsby participates in Read Across America Day

State Rep. Adam Dunsby (R-135) visited Hurlbutt Elementary School in Weston on Friday, March 2, to read to students in celebration of Read Across America Day, a nationwide reading celebration that takes place annually in honor of children’s author Dr. Seuss.

Dunsby read Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss to a first grade class.

Keisha Fink’s road to Weston was a typical one. In 2015, she and her husband, William Fink Jr., were looking for a home in neighboring Westport, a popular town on the Metro-North Railroad line with beaches and a vibrant downtown. But prices were daunting and an agent suggested they might get more for their money in Weston, a town they hadn’t considered.

Former Green Party Candidate Endorses Dunsby by Gabriel B. Rossi

Let’s face it, it’s a tough year for down-ballot candidates. With historic levels of distaste for our presidential nominees and a sincere lack of split-ticket voters, state politicians are left scratching their heads. An increasing unwillingness to differentiate local campaigns from national discourse is an understated causality of a political system in crisis and a terrible precedent for American democracy.

Six years ago, I ran for state representative in the 135 th district on the Green party ticket, so it may come as a surprise to learn that I am not endorsing the Green party candidate for that office today. And I’ll admit that I am tempted to punish republican nominees for their party’s front-runner, but when I reflect on Dr. Dunsby’s excellent performance as Easton’s first selectman, his incredible family, and all I know of him as a community leader and neighbor, I am confident in my decision to split the ticket this November and vote Dunsby for Connecticut Legislature.

Here are three reasons why other liberals should consider the same—even if you have to close one eye to cast your vote: First off, Dunsby is an environmentalist. He was the first person I know to drive an electric car; he is a strong supporter of alternative energy; and he is endorsed by the CT League of Conservation Voters in this election.

Secondly, Dunsby has skin in the game. All of his kids have attended public schools and he is a supporter of public education, serving (formerly) as chair of Easton’s Board of Education and on the representative council of our regional, educational service agency.

Lastly, Dunsby is prepared to serve. His background as a local politician and successful businessperson gives him the right balance of temperament and know-how to address the big challenges facing our state and communities.

So, as you stumble into the voting booth this November, red in the face at the top of the ticket, consider giving Dunsby a chance before blindly swiping across the party line; in my opinion, he has earned it.
