To the Editor:

On Nov. 2, we have very important choices to make for many city offices. But most importantly, we have the option of electing a new Mayor.

I am writing today to share with you all why I, a former candidate for Mayor, enthusiastically support Jeff Caggiano for this role. As a young person getting involved in politics many years ago, one of the first people I spoke to was Jeff Caggiano. When speaking with him, it became clear to me that Jeff is the kind of person that walks with you, rather than ahead of you.

Without pause, Jeff was welcoming, helpful, and kind. Over the years, I have been fortunate to work with Jeff on many projects and I have seen him in action, especially when he served on our Board of Education for four years.

I know that I am not alone in the bewilderment at the negative comments some in this town throw Jeff’s way. Anyone who knows Jeff knows he is a person of integrity. Jeff means what he says, takes time to listen to others, and truly exhibits a collaborative approach to problem solving. I am proud to call Jeff a mentor and a friend.

On Nov. 2, I am thrilled to cast my vote for Jeff Caggiano & I think you should, too.

Dante Tagariello
