I would like to encourage all Granby residents to vote for Valerie Eastwood as First Selectwoman in this upcoming election. I met Val shortly after she moved to town, and was immediately impressed with her intelligent and engaged approach to how Granby functions. She’s an attorney with experience as a small business owner, and holds an advanced degree in tax law that compliments her ongoing commitment to constructive conflict resolution. I can’t think of a better background for the position.
I’ve come to know her as a woman who is deeply committed to public service and was impressed by how quickly she quietly went about volunteering her talents to our local organizations. To me, she is the opposite of an ego-driven politician, incredibly qualified, and exactly what our community needs right now.
