I am a woman who has lived and worked in Orange for over 76 years. I have been privileged and honored to serve on several boards and commissions. I served on the Board of Selectmen and enjoyed my time. One of our First Selectwomen was the esteemed Dorothy Berger.
As a participant in town in many aspects, I have seen the good, the bad and the indifferent. Of all our First Selectman, James Zeoli and this team have been outstanding. Their accomplishments are too numerous to list. He has returned our town to AAA highest fiscal rating. in spite of the state’s disastrous financial condition. With farsighted abilities, he still maintained our great school system, recreational facilities, excellent roads and the commercial development. He is forward thinking. The job is not 9 to 5, but Jim and his team have devoted many, many more hours. He and his team have worked tirelessly for all our residents, young and old alike.
Jim’s love for Orange is undeniable. Orange is a great place to live, work and play. Your privilege in voting to keep it moving forward is necessary and hoped for! Help keep that kind of dedication alive.
