Letter: Tasimi would be an exemplary member of board

To the editor,

To seek public office and to serve the electorate can be a daunting experience. Visar Tasimi, Democratic candidate for the Naugatuck Board of Burgess, has proven himself to be up to the task.

After graduating with honors in three years from UConn with a degree in finance, he quickly distinguished himself rising through the ranks of several private sector Fortune 500 companies. And was recognized by the Hartford Business Journal in the “40 Under Forty” rankings. He has a deep and abiding dedication to community, serving as the president of the Waterbury Albanian Community Center, treasurer of the Naugatuck High School Band, as an adviser on the Council of the Diaspora Ministry, Albania, and a member of the Naugatuck Board of Finance.

A millennial experienced beyond his years, Visar would be an exemplary member of the Naugatuck Board of Burgess.
