Dear Middlefield Friends,
For the past six years, Jon Brayshaw and I have worked well together as colleagues. He consistently looks for what is best for Middlefield. He knows your town and genuinely cares for your well-being. Jon also is cognizant of the role Middlefield can play in our region and is a willing partner when it makes sense to share resources and functions.
I have stood side by side with Jon during storm response and recovery, at times of tragedy, and when tough decisions have to be made. I can attest that he is decisive, knowledgeable, compassionate and honest. All qualities I find important in an effective leader.
It is my distinct honor to endorse Jon Brayshaw for re-election as First Selectman of Middlefield and urge your support for Jon and Ed Bailey on election night.
