Those of us living in Montville who are retired on a fixed income and those who are unemployed are doomed to lose their homes and vehicles to the town. A democrat controlled town government will spend huge amounts of tax dollars on unnecessary and frivolous projects while ignoring the infrastructure and taxing the low and moderate income populace into oblivion.

I'm so very pleased with the team we put together for Montville. Every person was carefully selected because they brought something unique to the team that Montville needs. But most of all I am extremely happy with the conduct of our team. We kept it clean and above board and stuck to the issues. Now that we have been entrusted by the people with the town's business it is time to roll up our sleeves and go to work. Congratulations to all of you and THANK YOU MONTVILLE!

Congratulations to Ron McDaniel and the democrat team. I can't help but feel that because of all the mudslinging from some of your opponent’s, the voters made the logical choice. Just a friendly reminder to all the candidates, to remove your political signs from the side of the road, and help keep our town clean. Except of course, councilman Murphy. It would seem that your political opponent has already removed your signs for you before the election. And still you acquired the second most votes. WELL DONE

Congrats to all. It had to be a Democratic win in Montville. After all, there are no real Republicans in Montville politics anymore.
