YOUR VIEW: Zoppo-Sassu has experience, skills

To The Editor:

In a recent post on the Dante for Bristol Facebook page, Mr. Tagariello stated that “Maybe if they (meaning Democrats) actually understood how to save money, rather than raise the cost of living for the middle class, people would be happy with their work. Sadly, my opponent has neither the background or the skill set to do that.”

I was slightly taken aback by that statement since he is a 23-year-old recent college graduate working his first real accounting job. I think it is important for voters to understand why he would make such a statement given the fact that Mayor Zoppo-Sassu has both a bachelors and masters degree in public administration, in conjunction with her 30 plus years of service to various community groups and organizations. In light of her leadership on the City Council over four terms as well as her current role as the Mayor of the City of Bristol, I think the better question is how YOU believe that YOUR background and skill sets supersede those of the Mayor.
