“I served on the Board of Welfare for 21 years from1953 to 1974. I have been a burgess since 1974.”

What experience makes you qualified for this position?

If elected, what are your priorities and goals?

“My priorities are for a better Naugatuck and its citizens. My goals are to help senior citizens and youth of Naugatuck. Too many times we take these two groups for granted.
