Dunn-2015Steve Dunn Announces Run for First Selectman

Steve Dunn, a longtime resident of Brookfield, has announced that he will be running for the office of First Selectman and will be seeking the nomination of the Democratic Party to run as their candidate.

“Over the last two years, I have been speaking with residents who are very concerned with where our town is going and what residents perceive as a lack of honesty, transparency and respect,” said Dunn. He notes that issues like ignoring public input at town meetings and allowing petitions to be invalidated are not isolated incidents, but evidence of a leadership style that divides rather than unites. “Our town government must represent all of the people in Brookfield and not just the few in power,” he continued. “It has become clear to me that the current leadership does not listen to large numbers of residents in town, turning a deaf ear. Brookfield needs leadership that is inclusive, that plans transparently for the future. I’m running because I have the experience and the desire to help our community move forward together.”
