I am Jean de Smet and I am running for First Selectman of Windham, Connecticut.

I love Windham. Yet we can be a more vital and prosperous town. We desperately need new leadership for Windham to move forward. I know what has to be done, and I deliver results. Windham is a very special place. Beautiful rivers, forests, and historic villages surround our small, friendly city. This is the ideal place to call home. We should be very proud of what we have, but we have the potential to be much better.

Our greatest strength is our people. I first visited Willimantic right out of college, when I was invited to play softball. I discovered something I had never before experienced: community. I found a great group of people, from my friends at Rec Park to politicians; people raising their kids, teaching college or working at the Mills.

We are what makes Windham special. It’s no accident that only in Windham do we celebrate the 4th of July with a Boom Box Parade. We send our little leaguers to China and Poland. We celebrate our community every 3rd Thursday. We show off our Victorian homes, frog bridge, and wooded walks alike. And we always pitch in to help when we’re needed.

Partisan politics does not belong in local government and I’m putting those words into action by joining with candidates from all parties on The Bottom Line slate. We need to drop our partisanship and hear each others’ ideas. I’m excited to be a member of The Bottom Line. We will work together to make Windham better.

I produce the 3rd Thursday Street Fests. I’ve seen how Town Hall works and how it, frankly, does not work. Through my many activities, I'm painfully aware that we are lacking effective leadership. I have a 28-year history of fighting Town Hall and backroom deals.

With good leadership and management, we can move Windham forward. I have the courage, the energy, the strength and the passion to get the job done. I won’t quit when the going gets tough.

I deliver results.
