As a resident of Ansonia I need to say “THANK YOU” to Mayor Dave Cassetti and his team for what they are doing for this city. Never in my life have I seen this much positive energy coming out of Ansonia City Hall.
Two years of tax reductions. Plans to rebuild Wakelee Avenue and redevelop downtown. Keeping Farrel Corporation in Ansonia. Cleaner neighborhoods. And wonderful communication with residents!
Mayor Cassetti, I am impressed.
