Letter to the Editor Lifelong Dem voting for Dunsby

I am a lifelong Democrat, a 21-year Easton resident and concerned for the environment. State Representative Adam Dunsby has my vote to continue representing our district in Hartford.  He’s not just a fiscally responsible local leader with an extensive business background and education. He’s also committed to the environment and has worked locally for many years to protect it. As Easton First Selectman and earlier as Chairman of the Conservation Commission he has promoted solar energy, the protection of clean drinking water and electric vehicles. I am confident that he would continue to represent the constituents of the 135th well.

Shaw Honored

On September 26, 2018 at Grassy Hill Country Club Orange , CT, three Connecticut Police Chief’s were honored by the State of Connecticut Police Commissioners Association at the
“Distinguished Chiefs Awards Dinner.” Those honored were Easton Police Chief Timothy Shaw, Newtown Police Chief James Viadero and East Haven Police Chief Edward Lennon.

Chief Shaw was nominated for the Award by Easton Police Commissioner Marvin Gelfand who serves as The Treasure for the Connecticut Police Commissioners Association. The Master of Ceremonies was pt Vice President of the Police Commissioners Association Chip Rubenstein. The award was presented to Chief Shaw by his longtime co-worker and personal friend Stamford Police Chief Jon Fonteneau.

Chief Timothy Shaw took over as the Town of Easton’s sixth Police Chief in July of 2015. Chief Shaw retired from the Stamford Police Department after serving 28 years where he rose to the rank of Deputy Chief.

Shortly after coming to Easton he oversaw a very serious criminal investigation where he coordinated efforts between the Easton Police Department, Connecticut State Police, Bridgeport Police Department, Westport Police Department, Weston Police Department, the State’s Attorney’s Office, U.S. Marshal’s, and the United States Attorney’s Office. The investigation led to the apprehension and successful prosecution of two individuals.
Chief Shaw works very closely with the Town’s schools where safety and security is his number one priority. Chief Shaw is highly respected by all his staff at the Easton Police Department as well as the community. Chief Shaw is married to his wife Nancy and has a daughter, age 21, and a son age, age 18.

The ceremony was attended by Chief Shaw’s wife and children, many family members as well as numerous members of the Easton Police Department, Easton Police Commissioner, Easton Fire Department Chief Steve Waugh, Stamford Police Department and members of the Law Enforcement community throughout the state of Connecticut.
