The Democrats and TCI

As some of you might know, the Democrat Legislative majority and Gov. Lamont failed to pass The Climate Initiative (TCI) bill during the regular session. They may try again during a Special Session.

Support for Eastwood

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.

Support for Emery

We have known Jenny Emery and her husband “Coach” Dave for many years and have worked with both of them on some of the civic projects with which they have been involved. They share the same passion for Granby and have donated thousands of hours to it.

Support for Fiorentino

I support Mark Fiorentino to be Granby’s next First Selectman. Since Mark moved to Granby in 2009, he has been active in many areas that have greatly strengthened our community.

Support for King

I endorse Sally King as a candidate for the Granby Board of Selectmen. Sally is a positive, supportive, and competent person who has dedicated many years of service to Granby.

Support for Lofink

In looking forward to this fall’s local elections, we all likely know how important financial planning is for Granby’s fiscal health. For the Board of Finance, I’d like to recommend Jim Lofink to voters as a thoughtful, experienced Granby policy leader who has consistently demonstrated his value in promoting intelligent and informed public discourse—exactly what we need to balance tax burdens with service needs.

Support for Logan

I encourage everyone to vote for Monica Logan for the Granby Board of Education. Monica is committed to listening to all community members and is dedicated to ensuring that the Board of Education discussions and decisions are more open.

In June, Granby lost a town treasure.

Carol Laun was the curator and archivist for the Salmon Brook Historical Society, a volunteer position she had held for decades. Although Carol was from Milwaukee, she took on the role of preserving Granby’s history as if her roots were here.

Cultured Meat

I was excited to learn an Israeli company, Future Meat Technologies, recently opened the world’s first cultured-meat factory. For those who don’t know, cultured meat is grown from cells, without slaughtering animals.
