We asked them to go through a rigorous process to select the 6 best for each slate. Talented, experienced, capable, driven, and full of vision; that is how I would describe this group.”

Mayoral candidate Riley O’Connell said, “I’m honored to receive the Democratic endorsement, but it’s an even greater honor to run alongside the most incredible slate of Town Council and Board of Education candidates we’ve ever put forward.
