The Bloomfield Republican Party has chosen its slate of candidates for this November’s municipal election.

On the Republican ticket for Town Council are incumbents Joseph Merritt and Patrick DeLorenzo along with new candidates Joel Neuwirth, James McGovern and Quentin Johnson. Incumbent Susan True is the Republican candidate for the Board of Education, running for a four-year term. Nicholas Panke is the Republican candidate for the Town Plan and Zoning Commission with Mark Jacobs, the alternate. Lucille Wactowski and Steve Millette are candidates for the Zoning Board of Appeals with Toby Neuwirth, the alternate. Paula Walek is the Republican candidate for the Library Board of Trustees.

Bloomfield Republican Town Committee Chair, Bob Ike, said it is important for the voters to understand we are the local party and are totally committed to the community. We are confident we can pick up a seat this fall by unseating a Democrat because we have the best, most dedicated candidates.

The mission of the BRTC is that we are a diverse, inclusive group of people, interested in giving equal opportunities to all. We, as a party, believe in smaller government … we fight for the people’s right to have the final say … instead of government making all of the decisions. We have the best interests of ALL people at heart.

Locally, we support more affordable housing for low-income families, celebrate the town’s culturally-diverse population and hope to host a fun-family entertainment event. We strive to improve our education system for early childhood through high school, to maintain our recreational areas and parks, and maintain a clean, safe residential environment.

We have a special interest in bringing more economic development and jobs to Bloomfield … and to maintain our low crime rate. We support our vital local charitable services, i.e. our local fuel and food banks and the Police Department’s toys-for-tots campaign.

We hope to begin a scholarship fund for Bloomfield students to pursue higher education and provide a staffed education center devoted to helping our at-risk youth. We’d also support an annual Community Service Day in Bloomfield.

Our slate is committed to a balanced budget with no increases in taxes. We plan to work harder to get the message to our fellow Bloomfield residents that we need more economic development and employment here to ensure a fiscally responsible, comfortable, wonderful place to live and work.
