To the Editor:

I am writing in support of John Lillis for a position on the town council.

John is a lifelong resident of New Milford. His family and businesses have been a part of our town forever.

His late brother, Joseph, was our town historian and that is a passion that John shares as well.

His knowledge of the past is what we need to bring us into the future with integrity.

John stands behind what he says. He is a conscientious public servant and will continue to study and review all that comes before him and, in turn, will vote for what is best for the town, not what is best for the moment.

John never ceases to amaze me with his energy and drive. His work ethic is a model for everyone and his ability to juggle many tasks an inspiration.

I am a registered Republican and I vote for who is best as an individual, not by party alone. I have often heard positive comments about him from people in the community who know him.

I am confident John will continue to put the interests of our town first and foremost in the days and years ahead.
