Shelton Residents, Business Community and friends:


In six months our municipal elections will be held.  Just as is happening today, our lives will definitely continue to be impacted every day for the next several years by the actions and policies of those who are elected.


Misguided policies of those on the left at the state and national level have been affecting our quality of life on a daily basis.  It is hard to believe that proposals are put forward by them for excessive spending and radical policies at the beginning of each legislative session.  By doing so, citizens are burdened with additional taxes, increased food and energy costs, open borders and illegal drugs.  The actions of the left indicate they are so very much out of touch with the blue-collar, middle class citizens who make up the majority of voters.


We are fortunate in Shelton, however, to have a Republican Administration -- headed by 16-term Mayor Mark A. Lauretti -- who is holding the line on spending while continuing to bring services and balanced growth to our community.  Under the leadership of Mayor Lauretti and our Republican administration, Shelton is one of the safest communities in Connecticut in which to live, work, raise a family and recreate.


When it comes to what the Republican Party stands for, the Platform of the Republican National Party says it best, which Shelton’s Republican Party and administration supports:


“Republicans believe in liberty, economic prosperity, preserving American values and traditions, and restoring the American dream for every citizen of this great nation.  As a party, we support policies that seek to achieve those goals.


Our platform is centered on stimulating economic growth for all Americans, protecting constitutionally-guaranteed freedoms, ensuring the integrity of our elections, and maintaining our national security.  We are working to preserve America's greatness for our children and grandchildren.


The Republican Party's legacy -- we were originally founded in 1854 for the purpose of ending slavery -- compels us to patriotically defend America's values.  As the left attempts to destroy what makes America great, the Republican Party is standing in the breach to defend our nation and way of life.”


Anthony F. Simonetti, Chairman

Shelton Republican Town Committee
