What We Stand For

We are running for control of the BET to advocate for the community values that are widely shared.  Shortfalls in the current management of the Town are compromising progress towards these shared values.  We are focused on common sense government that addresses problems and plans for the future while keeping taxes low. You should expect your elected leaders to make the decisions that make Greenwich the town we want to live in:

  • One where the needs of the children in the public schools are met with with effective teachers and classroom supports in accessible and updated school buildings;

  • One where appropriate fire coverage is available to all our residents and businesses;

  • One where Town services provide a safety net for residents in their times of need;

  • One where Town facilities are improved to provide the amenities that residents deserve– including our civic centers, playing fields, safe bicycle routes, parks and beaches;

  • One where long-term planning is a focus– addressing the impacts of climate change as well as the challenges of the Town’s increasing capital investment requirements; and

  • One where good financial management accomplishes these objectives with the lowest possible
    tax rates.

We can deliver on these goals only if we win majority control. Click here to show your support!


What’s at Stake

We are committed to these goals, but we need to win control of the BET to accomplish them. The BET majority and the critical tie-breaking vote are given to the party with the highest cumulative vote total for its BET candidates. There are 12 candidates on the ballot and you are able to vote for up to six candidates. 

We urge you to vote for all six BET Democratic candidates.

BET elections matter.  Vote for all six Democrats.  Spread the word.
