What makes you a great candidate for the Town Council?
Having grown up here in Monroe, I was provided with many opportunities: opportunities I want to be available to all people who are able to live here at any point in their lives.
Along with the loving support of my family and my Monroe education and upbringing, I was able to achieve the rank of Eagle Scout; attend the top research university in the country, Johns Hopkins University, where I double majored in Political Science and Psychology, with a minor in Theater Arts; gain employment with Senator Dodd, for whom I served on his team for the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee; attend Quinnipiac University School of Law, where my studies included Education Law, Contract Law, Alternative Dispute Resolution, and Negotiations, among other topics; achieve my lifelong goal of becoming an Attorney, sworn into the Connecticut State Bar November 1, 2010; and, most importantly, return to serve my hometown as a concerned citizen who wants to give back to the community that gave so much to me.
As a lifelong resident of Monroe, I love this town. I want to see it grow and flourish. I once served as the Student Representative to the Monroe Board of Education. I served the community for six years on the Monroe Commission on Aging, where I acted as the vice chair of the committee.
Since then, I have been serving the Town on Town Council. I think we live in a wonderful town, with lots to offer. I would like to help make it even better. I don’t just want to continue to serve this community, I want to help it reach greater heights. I have been a part of Monroe’s past and have learned from it.
I am part of Monroe’s present and proudly serve it. I have a vision for Monroe’s future, so let’s be a part of it together. Vote Jason Maur for Town Council.
