To the Editor:

Progress doesn’t happen over night. Building partnerships and enticing businesses to come to Shelton was spearheaded with Mayor Lauretti's conservative and practical approach and strategic plans for economic growth.

The exodus from Democratic run cities and states has attracted new residents to our city, based on the sensible and progressive plans, without increasing our property taxes.

Generations of families tend to remain in Shelton because of the transparency and stability so vital to maintain sensible governing , especially in these uncertain times at the national level. The BOA which represents each ward's constituents is available to assist with matters impacting their day to day lives.

Working in tandem with the Mayor and other members of city hall’s administrative staff has been essential for the BOA which is the legislative body approving the financial component of the city’s ongoing progress.

We are pragmatic and base our decisions on factual information, and we don’t rubber-stamp motions made at our meetings, we are given the back up data prior to our meetings and address any concerns when warranted. I’d like to dispel the false perceptions people erroneously convey to Shelton residents in an attempt to get votes without any facts

Stay with the Lauretti team, come out to vote on Nov. 2. Vote row B.
