Republican says he will be voting for Novakowski in November

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

I grew up listening to my Uncle Sal talk politics and I was molded from an early age, predisposed to his views on the issues.

Like him and quite a few others in the town of Greenwich, I am a registered Republican and more often than not I vote that way along with Uncle Sal. This year, however, I find myself firmly in the corner of Rick Novakowski for tax collector.

I have watched as Rick has taken the lead and many times served as the voice for the best interests of the citizens of our town. He has shown character and true leadership, serving as a catalyst in getting the powers that be to listen and engage to implement policies in the best interests of our neighbors.

I have also seen him display those traits in the business world, and his performance in that role is what I think best qualifies him to be the public servant we need more of in our government.

In contrast, the Republican Party has chosen, once again, a candidate who brings very little to the table.

To paraphrase John F. Kennedy, “Sometimes party loyalty asks too much.”  And in this case, party loyalty is the only pitch they can give to vote Republican for tax collector.

When I saw my Uncle Sal the other day and local politics came up, I was a little concerned about what his reaction would be when I told him I’d be voting for Rick Novakowski in November. He answered me tersely with three words: “So am I.”

My neighbors, whether you are Republican, Democratic, or independent … so should you!
