Smith’s cooperation earns him re-election

DEAR EDITOR:

I am writing to voice my support for Randy Smith to be re-elected to the office of Trumbull County engineer and to urge all Trumbull County voters to cast their vote for him.

As a former Southington Township trustee for 28 years, I had the privilege of knowing Randy from the time he was Hartford Township trustee, a deputy engineer for Trumbull County and now as Trumbull County engineer.

I also attempted to work with his opponent during his short time as county engineer. I can honestly say there is no comparison.

The support Randy enjoys from many Trumbull County township officials speaks volumes about the service and dedication we receive from the Trumbull County Engineer’s Office under his leadership. Randy has developed and instituted many programs to help townships accomplish more services for their residents cost effectively. He has done this by implementing cooperation and collaboration among the townships and county.

Some of these programs and accomplishments are enhancing our annual chip-and-seal road work by using the county’s resources, adding a bulk storage facility for winter road salt and ash and adding a state-of-the-art truck wash and truck scale, both of which the townships are welcome to use.

The staff at the county engineer’s office is an extension of Randy’s ideals and philosophies. Everyone there, from the top engineers and planners to the frontline road workers, are easy to work with and eager to help.

Randy’s respect among county officials is well known and evidenced by the fact that county commissioners added the Trumbull County Sanitary Engineer’s Department to Randy’s control and leadership. In that position, Randy was the key link in promoting the Blueprint for Prosperity Water program that benefits Braceville, Southington and West Farmington townships and Farmington Village.

Thanks in large part to Randy’s leadership, clean, safe drinking water is now a 21st-

century reality for many Trumbull County residents.
