To the Editor:
In 2016, for numerous reasons, I attended an open house for the Berlin Democratic Town Committee. I knew a few members when I got there, but one person stood out: JoAnn Angelico-Stetson.
Not only did she warmly welcome me on that particular night, but as I got more involved in the BDTC. She was always in my corner. Even though she was a very busy and dedicated councilor, she took the time to first educate, then elevate and finally champion what I wanted to bring to the team. I have since, with her tremendous support, been able to successfully navigate leadership roles within the Berlin Democratic Party and local political campaigns.
Building on that, I have professionally made the leap from digital entrepreneur to working in local, state and national politics - a thrill of a lifetime really.
The residents of Berlin and Southington need someone that has their backs, who will help all constituents in time of need and one who will bring an expert voice to Hartford. Join me in voting for my friend and colleague JoAnn Angelico-Stetson this November. She’s ready to get to work for all of you.
