First District Town Council candidate Dave Wlodkowski provided insight into his views on stewardship and how as a Farmington Town Council member, he and the Democratic team will position Farmington for future generations.
Click here to see a video from the Farmington Town Council forum held earlier this week.
Dave Wlodkowski had this to say:
“Every organization fights to see how they can appeal to a new generation – a new generation to bring the those people into civic engagement. You don’t measure yourself where you are in your professional career, but in how you’re giving back to the town. So I think it’s critical for us to be stewards of not only what we do in our family life, but also try to open up all of these organizations to as many people as possible; and I think even on the council, we can even bring that kind of insight to govern.”
“Because we are stewards at a moment in time so that the town will last us a while longer than we’re going to be here.”
“There have been stewards along the way who have set the table for the next generation and the next generation after that – and that’s where we have to be.”
“We have to set the big process of today, but also look to the future and make sure we’ve done the best job in setting the course for that.”
