2019 Platform

The Southington Democratic Team is a diverse, energetic, and experienced group that has brought new leadership and ideas to the community.

Working together, our Team has the right vision to keep moving our town forward.

Together, they are committed to:

  • Keep taxes as low as possible by scrutinizing spending, finding efficiencies and explore alternate revenues.
  • Smart development in existing commercial and industrial zones for economic development, with a focus on making the existing town centers places where businesses can be and thrive.
  • Open space and heritage preservation, alongside thoughtful residential growth that meets the town’s needs, as opposed to satisfying developer’s bottom lines.
  • Continuing to make appointed boards and commissions be more reflective of the town.
  • Supporting our library as it seeks to serve the needs of our town through renovation and/or expansion.
  • A commitment to education that focuses on the vision of a graduate when making all policy and curriculum recommendations/decisions. A graduate of the Southington Public Schools will be college or career ready and prepared for life beyond by mastering the knowledge and demonstrating the skills to communicate effectively, think creatively and critically, and contribute to the global community.
  • Ensuring that education spending focuses on students vs. administrative costs.
  • Focus on communication and collaboration across different sectors, including between the BOE and town department functions. Not only efficiencies, but synergies.
  • To continue to support our public safety by giving our Police and Fire Departments the resources they need.
