North Stonington's November election holds an interesting slate. Four candidates for the two offices of first selectman and selectman are Republican. The exception is incumbent Mark Donahue, the sole Democrat. The loser of the first selectman race is included in the selectmen race where then four candidates will split that vote. There lies the importance in voting this election.
Nick Mullane has a long history of town service. Although he holds some positions with which I disagree, his dedication to town and trustworthy fiscal management is undeniable. Of the top two candidates, Nick is the best choice.
Brett Mastroani, running for selectman, is a local businessman and a leader of the North Stonington Business Association. He's a member of the School Building Committee for four years and vice chair of the Economic Development Committee for three years.
Mark Donahue is the sole Democrat and currently serves as a selectman. No one prepares himself better for meetings or has a better handle on the fiscal health of our town. Prior to becoming a selectman, Mark chaired the Board of Finance, a time when the town passed the budget on the first referendum three years in a row; testimony to his skill in leadership and finance.
