Community over party in the City of Groton

As current deputy mayor in the City of Groton, I would like to emphatically state that the opinions of all city residents matter. In recent fundraising emails and online retorts, Mayor Keith Hedrick has been denigrated by his opponent for taking the time to listen to constituents who are not registered Democrats. The administration’s focus is not on furthering the goals of the national Democratic Party by overriding the interests of our city residents. As elected representatives, it is our duty to represent everyone, not just those who voted for us, or who agree with us.

I urge the residents to re-elect a mayor who has proven that he does not govern based on party lines but based on what is best for the whole community. Mayor Keith’s opponent has shown repeatedly that he does not respect opinions that are different from his own. He is not prepared to lead a community as diverse as the City of Groton.

On May 3, I urge all voters to fill in bubble 1C and write in Keith Hedrick.
