I reserve my strongest endorsement for party endorsed candidates Mr. Richard Kaslaitis and Mr. Ed Norman for Aldermen in the Fourth Ward. Mr. Kaslaitis is the incumbent who has already been elected to this office and Mr. Ed Norman has a long and distinguished career of service to the City of Ansonia and specifically the people of the Fourth Ward!
Mr. Kaslaitis, as a dedicated Alderman, has attended all of the Board of Alderman meetings and, as an assigned Alderman, works with the Police Commission and the Recreation Commission. Additionally, Mr. Kaslaitis was part of the Board of Alderman Finance Committee, which crafted the zero-tax increase budget, while maintaining vital city services. He does all of this to the benefit of the City of Ansonia and specifically the people of the Fourth Ward.
Since the purchase of his home on Grove Street, Mr. Norman has been continuously serving the people of the Fourth Ward and the City of Ansonia. His contributions include, but aren’t limited to, Past Chief of the Charter Hose Fire Company, Originator of the Ansonia Block Watch, (originally the Westside Block Watch), and former Fourth Ward Alderman. Mr. Norman has also served on the Ansonia Board of Apportionment and Taxation and, until recently, on the Ansonia Housing Authority. Most people at this point would rest on their laurels, however Mr. Norman’s knowledge, skills, and talents would be a welcome addition to the Ansonia Board of Aldermen as we advance into 2018.
Considering all of the information stated above I strongly feel that the Fourth Ward will be well served by incumbent Alderman Richard Kaslaitis and Mr. Ed Norman as members of the Ansonia Board of Aldermen as we move into the future.
The author is president of the Ansonia Board of Aldermen.
