Bolton DTC Endorses Candidates

At our July 22, 2021, DTC meeting, members of the Bolton Democratic Town Committee (DTC) endorsed the following candidates to run in the November 2021 municipal election.

In nominating Sandy Pierog for her third consecutive term as First Selectman, DTC vice chairman Adam Teller praised her leadership over the past four years and especially her role in guiding the town during the COVID pandemic:

“Under incredibly difficult circumstances, Sandy has worked tirelessly to improve communication between town government and voters, to ensure that town government continued to function even in the darkest days of the pandemic, and has advocated for Bolton voters at every turn.”

Sandy agreed that the past two years have indeed been a challenge,

“The past four years have been challenging and rewarding. We have been able to keep town services available to residents throughout even the worst of COVID. Working with town staff, the Board of Education and others, we have been able to reduce expenses in several areas, increased communication and transparency and maintained the level of services our residents expec. We still have much to do, and I look forward to leading Bolton through new infrastructure improvements, approval and implementation of town charter changes, the addition and expansion of businesses in Bolton and dealing with issues of diversity and inclusion. I am excited to lead this great team of talented candidates.”

DTC chairman Christopher Davey thanked all of the candidates for their willingness to run for office. He noted the mix of seasoned and new faces.

“It’s especially gratifying to see four first-time candidates. They bring to the table a tremendous range of life experience, a fresh perspective and a desire to help Bolton continue to move forward.”

The town will face many challenging issues in the coming months and years, including major bonding questions, implementation of a new town charter, questions about how to grow the tax base, and issues of diversity and broader representation. The good news, Chris said, is that this year’s slate of candidates are more than ready for the challenge. “The candidates we endorsed tonight are the team Bolton needs!”
