Town Leadership

What are the qualities of an ideal Republican Town leader?​

  • They are able to build relationships. Relationship-building is important in the political world. A Town leader should build excellent relationships with Board and Commission members as well as residents.

  • They are a critical thinker. A great Town leader will have short and long-term goals in mind as they make decisions. They’ll ensure they’re making decisions that will benefit our community.

  • They are prepared. Being a Town leader requires responsibility, preparedness, and the ability to make decisions quickly and efficiently. A Town leader needs to have the proper amount of time to dedicate to the job and its many responsibilities.

  • They are knowledgeable. Town leaders must be able to read and analyze financial and legal statements among other key information that decides the fate of our community. Then, they must be able to make the best decisions for the Town based on their analyses.

  • They are approachable. A Town leader must be charismatic. Residents and individuals with leadership positions should be able to speak to each other with candor and respect and the Town leader should have an open mind as they listen.

  • They are an excellent communicator. Town leaders must convey important messages to their peers and residents. The best Town leaders will streamline communication so that everyone is as informed as possible.

  • They must be a great listener. Town leaders work with Board and Commission members to make the best decisions for their community. They must be able to listen to advice and consider all options before making major decisions that affect everyone in their Town.

We are a politically diverse team, united in our commitment to our town.  If elected, we will:

  • Focus on improving Amity’s academics to ensure the best possible education for all students.

  • Launch a coordinated assessment of all the town’s capital projects, prioritizing both Beecher’s immediate needs (including a new roof) and its longer-term space requirements.

  • Modernize town government, starting with Charter changes to require a yearly referendum on our annual town budget and election of our Board of Finance – the Board that crafts the annual budget and sets our ever-increasing mill rate.

  • Vigorously defend our town in the pending lawsuit regarding state affordable housing requirements.

  • Oppose the sale of any former Country Club of Woodbridge (CCW) acreage for housing. State law does not require the town to construct housing on town-owned land and doing so would be fiscally irresponsible.

  • Proactively vet alternative ideas that residents have offered for the former CCW, and do the hard work of engaging constituents to forge consensus on the property’s future.


  • Review and propose taxation programs enabling our seniors to remain in their homes, while focusing on growing revenue from our business district.

  • Offer professional and fair application of our town’s zoning laws and assessment techniques.

  • Champion the right decisions for all residents, irrespective of politics.  Focus on objective analysis supported by data and open, transparent debate with an emphasis on public input.
