Ledyard is doing great, stick with winning team
Ledyard voters should ask themselves if the town is better off than it was the last time they went to the polls to elect local officials. The facts indicate that indeed it is.
Since 2017, the old Gales Ferry School has been sold, the old police building has been sold, and the Ledyard Center School has been sold. In each case, property that had become a maintenance liability has been put back on the tax rolls.
Additionally, the multi-year projects to renovate-as-new both the Ledyard Middle School and the Gallop Hill School have been completed on time and under budget, and the much-needed repairs and upgrades to the Ledyard High School athletic facilities have begun.
All of these accomplishments position Ledyard for future economic growth and make the town a desirable place to live and educate children. The incumbent leaders in the mayor’s office, on the Town Council, and on the Board of Education have served selflessly and effectively. They deserve to be given the opportunity to continue to lead Ledyard. Those leaders are found on Row B of the ballot for Nov. 5. Please exercise your right to vote.
