The Orange Republicans hosted their caucus at High Plains Community Center on Wednesday, July 19. 

Former First Selectman Dottie Berger gave the following speech to endorse incumbent First Selectman Jim Zeoli for the upcoming municipal election: 

Good Evening.

Charles Dickens wrote = “It was the best of times it was the worst of times.”

Today we are in the times of uncertainty. That is one of the major challenges to be faced by our towns and cities. However, in our town, I see one man who is prepared to address that uncertainty. — That person is James Zeoli, He’s started already. 

Just as Joseph stored the grain for his people in Biblical times and just as the farmer of today maintains a strong hand on the tiller keeping a straight forward line. Jim has done so in governing our town by storing in the barn a healthy fund balance. 

With foresight over the past years, town expenditures have been closely monitored. 

The guiding word for spending town funds is NEED. In an orderly fashion, the town departments’ NEEDS are met. 

As I reviewed the town budget and bond projects it appears that every department received needed funding to maintain the quality of town services expected. 

People make things happen. Jim’s appointments are of those who are knowledgeable and who best will serve the town of Orange. 

Jim’s knowledge of the demands of town operations – trust me he knows – is uncanny. 

Ask about a truck – don’t because for the next 10 minutes he will talk about what it can do; concerned about the habitat at the conservation sites – prepare for a lecture on flora and fauna – and who else finally could get the flag pole painted while the church steeple was being tended. 

At the same time, he is diligently working with Economic Development seeking to improve the tax base with quality businesses. 

So important for this allows the community to maintain an outstanding school system, the leading priority in our town forever. 

He is Johnny on the Spot. He possesses the “common touch” Rudyard Kipling wrote of. He is a roll up the sleeves person. He is committed to providing the best services to the young, the elderly and those in between – through the support of those “helping hand special places” – Case Memorial Library, Community Services, Park and Recreation and Visiting Nurse Association. 

He has provided for the safety and security of the community. He has kept pace in the ever changing business world of electronics and computers. 

He is dedicated to providing a quality of living in our town that we take for granted. He doesn’t take it for granted. He is on the job 24-hours a day making it happen. 

He is proud of our town and his mother and I are proud of him. He grew where he was planted and through his efforts he has produced a better Orange each year of his time in office. 

Without reservation, it is my privilege to nominate James Zeoli for the office of First Selectman of the Town of Orange. 

NOTE: Richard Cenami seconded the nomination and said a few words as well.
