The “Old Guard” Republicans who ran Greenwich from 2006 to 2022 are not fiscally conservative and they want you to vote for them and their hand-puppets for the Republican Town Committee (RTC). Their record stands against them. They claim they are “good people” and fear being attacked, but reality is the opposite. Their record is far from fiscally conservative, and instead of supporting conservative efforts they’ve been coordinating with Democrats to undermine volunteer Republican coaches, teachers, engineers and other hard working citizens who ran for the RTM. These Old Guard republicans literally helped the far-left takeover of the RTM which started in 2017, and supported the Democrat BET.
Here’s a summary of their recent record (all easily verifiable facts):
You’ll find more pictures of them with Democrats than with any local Republicans. For example more of Joe Kelly with Steve Meskers (Democrat 150th) and Tony Turner (former DTC chair) than with local Republicans.
The “Old Guard” clearly doesn’t hold Republican or conservative ideals. They’ve been in charge of Town spending for a long time and clearly want to keep it that way. They seem out to destroy Republicanism in Greenwich. They even encouraged Democrats to change parties support to this effort and some did.
As a result of their desperation to hold on to power, these leftist Republicans have been appeasing Democrats and supported a tax and spend agenda. How did it work out for them and for us? Greenwich population is down but spending is up, taxes are up (20% higher per household after adjusting for inflation) and in 2023, the Dems were at 49% and Republicans were at 51% at last November’s election, 2 percentage points close to taking over Greenwich. And the RTM is already controlled by Democrats.
Greenwich is founded on Republican values and built by Republicans. This slow and steady erosion of Republicanism needs to stop, and you can stop it.
Now is your chance to support Republican values and principled Republicans.
Principled Republicans who want to bring common sense governance back to Greenwich and want to rejuvenate the Republican Party. These folks support responsible spending. They are sensible, hardworking Republican volunteers who among many other accomplishments:
Please vote for these fiscally conservative, hardworking, principled Republicans in the upcoming primary on March 5th. These Republicans strongly support sensible and responsible spending instead of over-ther-top construction projects; they want to re-focus on academic achievement in modernized schools; and they will stop Greenwich from turning into another failed Democrat city full of high-rises and high taxes like neighboring Stamford or Yonkers.
Please vote only for these:
