Stratford native and former bank executive Joe Paul announced the formation of his exploratory campaign committee for mayor of Stratford.
Paul said in a press release that Stratford is faced with the same economic struggles that challenge our State and other municipalities, and he believes his fresh perspective and vision will make a difference.
He currently serves on Stratford’s Planning Commission and the Board of Assessment Appeals.
“Now is the time to stop the stagnation in Stratford,” said Paul in the release. “We need a fresh approach in how we conduct town business and how we treat our town residents and businesses. Our property taxes have been going up. Nothing has been done to reverse that trend.”
Paul has been married for 47 years and has for daughters and six grandchildren living close to Stratford.
