Dennis Tulimieri for Planning Commission
Hello, please allow me to introduce myself, I am Dennis M. Tulimieri, Jr. I was raised in Glastonbury and graduated from Merrimack College. Kim & I married in 1989 and lived in Portland for over 20 years, raising 3 children, who are now independent young adults of whom we are very proud. We moved to Old Saybrook in early 2017. I have worked traveling the greater northeast for over 30 years providing industrial electrical products and services to industrial plants, hospitals, and a variety of municipalities and institutions. I have witnessed firsthand the changes in our region and the ingenious capabilities of our communities to thrive when given the opportunity.
I believe an imploding economy has produced an imploding middle class leading to many of the challenges we see in our community. All this was produced by a kind of massive, chronic underinvestment in public goods. It does not have to be this way.
I believe the civil liberties of all citizens must be protected. I believe healthcare is a human right as is a secure retirement. I believe climate change is an existential threat and I believe public education is part of a solution. I believe we need to make changes to eliminate racism and gun violence in our country. I can offer constituents my honest and sincere commitment to work to better our community. It will be an honor to serve the citizens of Old Saybrook.
