Help Groton council keep progress going, choose Bordelon
As a former teacher and longtime friend of Portia Bordelon, I wholeheartedly support her election to the Groton Town Council.
For the past two years, the Democratic Town Council, led by Patrice Granatosky, has created positive change in Groton by turning its back on the divisiveness of the former council and instead turning its attention to cooperation and progress. Portia Bordelon, newly appointed to the council, will continue to be an asset to this effort when she is elected on Nov. 5.
Portia cares about Groton’s families. As the mother of two fine young men, she wants Groton to be a place where families thrive, and young people have job opportunities that keep them here in Groton. She understands that the taxes necessary to support a healthy community come from the pockets of hardworking families. Portia will add to the Democratic council’s efforts to use our tax dollars wisely to spur economic development, provide quality services, preserve our environment, and support excellence in education.
Portia Bordelon and her Democratic colleagues are the right choice for Groton.
