Jim Zeoli Accepts Nomination For First Selectman

Jim Zeoli Accepts Nomination For First Selectman

Republicans Offer Full Slate for Fall Election

At the Republican caucus held on July 17, Jim Zeoli was once again unanimously nominated as candidate for First Selectman.  During his acceptance remarks, Jim spoke about one of the first projects he took on as First Selectman, the Fieldstone Village.

“This project was rejected by the previous Democratic administration.  When I came into office, I took it on and reconnected with the developer.  After two years of effort, the project moved forward.  Fieldstone is now one of our top taxpayers and a wonderful neighborhood.  This was made possible by the efforts of many talented people in legal and on the Boards of Finance and Zoning.” said Jim Zeoli.

Fieldstone Village is just one of many economic development successes that Jim Zeoli and his team have achieved.  Sound management has enabled us to maintain our AAA bond rating and keep control of taxes, despite the many economic challenges facing our State.

“We have accomplished miles of road improvements, and many projects for our schools and other town buildings.  Improvements continue, including soon-to-be completed renovations to High Plains Community Center.  We have dotted every “i” and crossed every “t” to gain state funding for projects including the Derby Milford Road Bridge and for future developments.” said Jim Zeoli.

We are proud of our Republican Team, those dedicated and talented people who run Orange from behind the scenes and on our boards and commissions.  Working with the First Selectman, these are the people responsible for the efficient running of our town government.

We are fielding a strong group of experienced incumbents along with highly qualified new candidates.
