Bumgardner has the kind of experience City of Groton needs
There has been a lot of talk about experience in the Democratic primary for mayor of Groton. Much of it has been from the current mayor and his supporters about the supposed lack of experience of candidate and Town Councilor Aundré Bumgardner, who is less than half his opponent’s age. But I do not believe that experience is only defined by your age and the number of jobs you have had. Experience is also measured by how and where you were raised, what your values and vision are, and how you treat others in your community. To me, that is the kind of experience that matters most when it comes to choosing our leaders. As anyone who knows Aundré or has met him recently, when he knocked on your door, will tell you, that is the kind of experience that sets him apart from his opponent.
And that is the kind of experience that Groton needs to move our city forward.
