Supporting and Engaging the Seniors of Trumbull Platform

Preamble: First Selectman candidate Vicki Tesoro and Team Tesoro believe our town has a responsibility to engage and support all of our residents. Over eighteen percent of our town is 65 years of age or older. We are proud that many of these have lived most, if not all, of their lives here, raising families, building businesses, and growing our community.

Our plan: Team Tesoro commits to engaging seniors in town through community offerings that support their needs and provide expanded experiences. Team Tesoro will:

  • Consult with seniors, both formally and informally, to gather their input on the programs and services currently offered, as well as what they would like to see added.
  • Research varied tax relief and deferral programs and inform seniors of their options and choices.
  • Add senior appointments to town commissions and committees, where appropriate, to allow for their input and perspectives.
  • Assemble our EMS, police, health department, and social services staff to identify the health and safety needs of our seniors, and implement educational programs to support and assist them.
  • Work with the Trumbull Library to expand lecture series, movie screenings, and book clubs for seniors.
  • Provide opportunities for our seniors to enjoy our youth arts programs by organizing performances and events with our choral, band and theatre groups.
  • Expand our outreach to seniors so they are aware of the Town’s programs and services.
  • Review options for a Senior Center.

Team Tesoro values our seniors and wants them to thrive in Trumbull. We will engage our seniors, learn from them, and provide opportunities for them to participate in the life of our community. As First Selectman, Vicki Tesoro will actively support our seniors in Trumbull and be responsive to their needs.

Trumbull Youth Programs Platform 

Preamble: Twenty-five percent of Trumbull residents are under 18-years-of-age. First Selectman candidate Vicki Tesoro believes the town must not only provide a high-quality education for our youth, but also activities and recreational opportunities that enable them to develop and showcase their talents and interests. Research shows that youth who engage in and feel valued by their community perform better in school and are less likely to engage in risky or illegal behaviors.

Our plan: Team Tesoro believes that we have a responsibility to engage and support all of our residents, including our youngest. Vicki Tesoro has been a champion for our youth for two decades, and will continue to do so when elected as First Selectman. Team Tesoro will:

  • Consult with our teens to gather their input and engage them in the planning and implementation of constructive and positive activities in town.
  • Reinstate the Youth Commission and include teen representation.
  • Add youth appointments to town commissions and committees, where appropriate, to allow for their input and perspectives.
  • Ensure that the Recreation Department has the support to provide our youth with activities and events that interest and engage them, such as outdoor movie nights, dances, battles of the bands, and sports tournaments
  • Work with our youth to revisit and revitalize the Teen Center at Indian Ledge to make it a desirable venue.
  • Restore the Trumbull Youth Association (TYA), which provides youth theatre and the arts, to an independent line item in the budget. These programs must be treated as opportunities for valuable education and enriching experiences for the whole community.
  • Develop a job/community service referral program to provide youth with volunteer opportunities to help private residents and the town.

Team Tesoro believes our youth must be given the opportunity to contribute to Trumbull.  Vicki Tesoro will engage our youth; listen and act on their input and ideas. As First Selectman, Vicki Tesoro will be a champion for our youngest residents, so that they can grow and thrive in our community.
