Ticket experience driving his vote for Bumgardner on May 3

I live in the City of Groton and have spent most of my adult life living in Groton or Mystic. One day, almost two years ago, I received a parking ticket in front of my house. There were no yellow lines, and a sensible person would think that parking in front of your house would be legal. I went to the police and they said that parking was not allowed there and that the ticket was valid. I went to the mayor, Keith Hedrick and told him my story. He said there was nothing he could do. I met with a person in charge of parking, and she said the same thing.

This past year, they decided to paint the curb in front of my house yellow.

This is one reason why I feel some of us citizens are not heard. I hope that if Aundré Bumgardner wins the election, maybe my parking issue and some other changes can come to fruition. I am supporting Bumgardner because I feel he brings fresh ideas to the position. We all had to start a position to gain experience. There are plenty of qualified people who would love to support Aundré and help him learn what it takes to be a great mayor.
