The four candidates, led by incumbent Dave Evans, introduced themselves and unveiled a four point plan that they said will serve to help bring a stronger future to the community.
"The big point for us, is to get the word out and get residents out to vote," said Charles Paonessa. "The people we've talked to are concerned about the tax increases and voters are telling us they believe their voice is being ignored."
Anne Reilly, a member of the Berlin Republican Town Committee, released the following platform on behalf of the Republican candidates:
- Responding to residents and businesses with improvements Berlin can afford
- Responsible education funding
- Supporting critical infrastructure repairs
- Creating a business friendly climate
Democrats last week unveiled their platform, promising to grow on advances made in the past several years.
"We believe that healthy communities begin from the ground up,” said deputy Mayor Rachel Rochette. “Together with the community’s help, ideas and support, we have been able to revitalize our downtown, renovate our schools, provide all-day kindergarten, preserve over 850 acres of open space, and redevelop blighted buildings – projects and policies that make Berlin a better place for everyone.”
