Party Platform: Democrats are running on their record, not resume


Two years ago, you elected Julia Pemberton and Leon Karvelis based on their experience as seasoned town officials and the promises they made to govern Redding well. They have kept those promises. Now they are running on their record and their experience as longtime dedicated town officials and volunteers. Facts matter.

Here are the top 10 reasons to vote for the Democratic slate on Nov. 3.

  1. Experience, leadership and trust are the recipe for good government. That’s what all the Democratic candidates offer.
  2. Julia, with Leon, worked harmoniously on the Board of Selectmen in a nonpartisan way to benefit the town.
  3. They worked with the Board of Finance to achieve no tax increases.
  4. They took decisive action to protect Redding’s interests in Georgetown.
  5. They implemented an aggressive program to reconstruct and maintain our roads.
  6. They received grants to expand the Mark Twain Library parking lot and preserve open space.
  7. They initiated a program of transparent government by videotaping town meetings and creating a new town website.
  8. They undertook a top-to-bottom review of all town departments to achieve savings for the town.
  9. They supported high-quality education for our students as our responsibility and our bridge to the coming generations of leaders.
  10. The Democratic candidates have a single goal: to work for the good of Redding, without any partisan agenda.

I ask you to keep our town a well-governed place that puts our residents’ needs first — whether they be children, families, seniors, homeowners, or businesspeople.

Please vote on Nov. 3 to elect Julia Pemberton for first selectman, Leon Karvelis for selectman, Peg O’Donnell for Board of Finance, Gwen Denny and Melinda Irwin for Board of Education, and the rest of the Row A slate of sound, experienced thoughtful candidates.
