Great presentation by Colchester Youth Services last night about the dangers of vaping.

I was surprised to learn that a survey of our schools showed one in three high school students has tried vaping. There is still so much we don't know about the long term effects of this, but we do know that 33 people have lost their lives as a result of it in 2019. Many students attended the presentation, but we will have to continue our efforts as a community to combat and educate against this new epidemic.

Colchester Seniors know it's time to build a new Senior Center. But despite forming a new Senior Center Building Committee, town management under the direction of the First Selectman are STILL privately saying they don't expect to bond for this project for more than three years. The truth is buried in the town's latest S&P rating report.

When I'm elected, I will make sure the Senior Center project is a priority and that we examine all possible sources of funding to move this long-overdue project forward in a fiscally responsible way.

Vote Mary Bylone for First Selectman on November 5th.

When we identify a problem in our community, we can't just say "it can't be fixed." Instead, we have to develop potential solutions. That doesn't mean every problem can be solved overnight, but no problem can be fixed by shrugging our shoulders and giving up. I won't give up.

Vote for Mary Bylone for First Selectman on November 5th.
