“If re-elected, I pledge to utilize the technical and detailed knowledge of rules, policies and procedures I have gained over the past several years to make wise decisions for Litchfield, especially with state interference looming and several large issues currently facing the commission.”

Max.jpg

MAX MCINTYRE

P & Z - Candidate

I pledge to serve this town by standing up for the integrity of Litchfield. I am fearful of Litchfield devolving into what has happened in other previously beautiful towns — the over crowding and saturation of businesses along the 202 corridor. Litchfield remains intentionally and traditionally a clean, small and caring New England town. We must preserve Litchfield for the next generations to enjoy.

PETER DAUTEN

“My pledge to the community of Litchfield is to keep zoning at a local level, support small business and control large franchises from taking over our small town. To me community first means that whatever decisions we make on whatever committee, it be what is best for our community.”

Norman.jpg

P & Z - Candidate

“I pledge my full commitment to preserve the history and charm of our town by putting Litchfield’s long-term preservation needs first. I will remain open-minded and impartial, seeking solutions that best protect our way of life and in support of Litchfield’s small businesses and agricultural needs, for success in the 21st century.”

GUY CUNNINGHAM

COMMUNITY FIRST!
