To the editor,
On Nov. 5, 2019, the citizens of Beacon Falls elected me to the office of first selectman. I am extremely thankful to those who supported my candidacy, either with donations, or displaying a sign, attending one of my events, liking posts, talking with your neighbors, and, especially, through giving me your vote.
My tenure began Nov. 18, and I’m asking those who, for one reason or another, chose not to support me, to reach out and get to know me. I will have a transparent government, welcoming suggestions and ideas from residents. My door will be open and I will return phone calls and emails. I am truly looking forward to leading Beacon Falls into the next decade.
Gerard F. Smith
