On Tuesday November 7th, 2017, the citizens of Enfield will again have the opportunity to decide which course our town will follow and who should be doing the leading. Over the last 10 years, the Republican-led Town Council and Board of Education has worked diligently to improve our educational system by combining the high schools on-time and under budget, implementing a curriculum to meet the needs of the 21st century with a K-12 focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics), by prioritizing economic and community development as well as infrastructure-improvement projects, by enacting cost-efficient programs to consolidate service delivery and keep the Town financially stable, by ensuring that the needs of students at all ends of the spectrum (from special needs to talented-and-gifted) are met, by increasing transparency by requiring all labor contracts negotiated to be on file for public inspection before a vote can be taken, by focusing on public safety with the addition of more officers in concert with upgraded equipment and resources and much more.

We encourage you to take a look at our 2017 team of candidates who, with your support this November, will continue to lead Enfield down the right path.
