    Leadership needed in Montville mayoral race

    Montville’s mayoral race is where leadership experience is essential and where Tom McNally comes up short. His only experience holding a supervisory position was the assistant superintendent of Montville's WPCA, from which he was justly fired, due to a gross dereliction of duty resulting in injuries to two employees. Lenny Bunnell, on the other hand, has been for the most part in charge of 20-plus police officers for over 15 years. Should Bunnell be elected he would be able to call on 20 years of experience from former mayors Ron McDaniel and Joe Jaskiewicz and also help from two state senators, Martha Marx (D) and Cathy Osten (D), and state representative Kevin Ryan (D). In contrast, McNally would be calling on his closest confidant Jeff Rogers, which would not bode well for Montville. In 2020-2021, when Democrats last had control of the council, taxes were actually cut in both years. Since McNally and company took control in 2022, our taxes have skyrocketed. This election season, Republicans have coined the phrase, Moving Montville Forward. The only thing I see is our taxes moving forward. Need I say more?
