Derby taxpayers need a full-time Mayor to work on their behalf.
I have pledged that if I am elected mayor on November 7th, I will take the position seriously and work full-time at no extra cost to the taxpayers.

Congratulations to Anita Dugatto on her victory in the Democratic primary.
Her genuine, emotional reaction showed that like both myself and Carmen DiCenso, she truly cares about Derby.

The City of Derby needs a mayor who will be a leader working as a team with all involved striving to better our beloved city, thus, why I am supporting Carmen DiCenso’s
bid to be the Democratic candidate for Derby’s next mayor.

When considering who is best to lead Derby, as a professional I first want to see how sharp, committed, strategic, and caring that person is. I also want to see results.
In Mayor Anita Dugatto we are lucky to have someone who understands that managing a city, particularly one with a large redevelopment project in the works, is a serious task that requires serious skill and dedication. Since Anita Dugatto took over as mayor, here is what I see:

In the years I lived in Derby, I watched some of the political dysfunction front and center.
I watched as people were more interested in personal squabbling, score settling and cheap shots than actually fixing the problems that started to accumulate.
The sewer deteriorated. Businesses shuttered. “Same old Derby” was a frequent complaint.

Margaret Thatcher, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom once said, “In politics, if you want something said, ask a man. If you want anything done, ask a woman.”
I’m proud of Derby’s first female Mayor. It’s with this pride that I’ll cast my vote on Tuesday, September 12th for Anita Dugatto.
I’ve known Anita since she supervised me at WaWa when I was in high school. Looking back, I smile as I realize that I’m still reporting to her.

The name DiCenso is synonymous with Derby. For so many kids and families growing up in this great city, I can say with confidence that the DiCenso family has positively affected the lives of so many.
