Actions and not mere words best described Peter Tesei and his administration of the Town over the past six years. During this last term, Peter fought for and received initial funding for the public safety communications radio system; he advocated and received a State Small Town Economic Assistance Program Grant (STEAP) to support the replacement of the aged Health Department Laboratory which is responsible for water quality testing as well as tick and rabies testing; he obtained initial funding for the Central Fire Station and Fire Headquarters; he obtained funding to replace the deteriorated house on King Street with a modular trailer so that GEMS could continue to provide 24/7 coverage in the northwest section of Greenwich; he oversaw the implementation of a 311 citizen service application which allows the Town to track the progress and timeliness of citizens’ requests; and he had GPS installed in Town vehicles to provide greater accountability. On top of all of that, Peter has been steadfastly fighting to retain local control by opposing the implementation of the MORE Commission, a first step by Hartford toward regionalization.
Peter has led us for the past 6 years with honesty, conviction and common sense. On November 5th, ask yourself one question, has the Town properly managed your tax dollars during these difficult economic times? Due to the capable leadership of Peter Tesei, my response is a resounding yes. Please join me in supporting Peter to continue serving as our First Selectman.
State Representative (R-150)
