Seery will have an open door in East Lyme
I have known Kevin Seery since he moved to East Lyme more than 35 years ago, and I can attest to his qualifications for the role of First Selectman. His adult life has been the embodiment of public service. Kevin was a commissioned officer in the U.S. Navy, who participated in the rescue operation of wounded soldiers during the invasion of Grenada in 1983. He retired from the Connecticut State Police after serving the public honorably for 28 years, and he gleaned valuable experience, with respect to the budgetary process, disciplinary reviews, collective bargaining, and hiring personnel, while serving on the Board of Education. Subsequently, he was elected to the Board of Selectmen, where he presently serves, and he was appointed to the role of Deputy First Selectman, who assumes the responsibility of leadership when the First Selectman is not available. Kevin is a humble man, who will listen attentively to every citizen; the door to his office will remain open to everybody; and he will research an issue thoroughly before a making logical and intelligent decision. He has a wealth of experience in the operation of our local government. The man has steadily woven himself into the fabric of our community.
