Campaign themes

2013

Greco provided the following reasons for her 2013 re-election campaign in the New Britain City Journal:[2]

"I have taught in New Britain for 35 years. My background includes teacher, counselor, housemaster and principal. I moved to New Britain after my retirement and have continued to serve the children of New Britain. I graduated from Central Ct. University, Northeastern University and received a master's degree in special education/Spanish from the University of Hartford.

I have been an active participant in community activities including, First Female President of the Boys and Girls Club, Board member of the B&G Club, Race in the Park Co-Chair in 2004/2005, First Female President of the Kiwanis Club in New Britain, Young Parents Club, YWCA Women in Leadership.

My focus on education should be to give every child the equal opportunity to learn to read and write. Each child must be given basic fundamentals which are the building blocks to expand their knowledge of the world they live in. We need to encourage them to become positive, compassionate members of their community and society. Every child should have the equal opportunity to soar to their highest level and beyond. We must ensure that we carry out our obligation to see that this happens. My focus has always been for a quality, equal education for every child in New Britain."

What was at stake?

Five seats were at stake. Incumbent Democrats Sharon Beloin-Saavedra and Judy Greco were on the ballot. Both candidates were successful in their re-election bids. The New Britain Democratic Town Committee endorsed newcomer Daisy Sanchez for the 2013 election, who also won a seat on the board. Daniel Davis, Nick Mercier and Stacey Rosado received the endorsement of the New Britain Republican Town Committee. Only Rosado did not win a seat on the board. Current members Paul Carver, Anthony Kane and Luisa Leal did not file for re-election.

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.[5]
