To the Editor:

When David Eldridge was a Shelton police officer he was assigned to the Statewide Narcotic Task Force which I supervised.

I had the privilege to work with David for approximately three years and really got to know him on and off duty. I still maintain a relationship with David to this day. David Eldridge was well liked and respected by his supervisors and peers.

Amongst his many positive qualities David is the most dependable “team player” that I ever supervised. He worked well with many different agencies and individuals. Whatever it took to get the job done David would step up to complete the task. As a mayor of Shelton I believe these qualities will be a major asset.
