John McEachron – Running for Wilton Town Council

By | News

Q:  What is your vision for Wilton five years from now?

McEachron: Wilton will see smart, stable growth and continue to be a Town with "No Tax."  Our town government will be transparent and guided by the will of the residents. Sensible investments will ensure our long-term stability, the safety of our roads and continued expansion of community amenities. 

Q: How do you feel about the recent zoning changes?

McEachron: Members of the town board, who voted in favor of these changes, including my opponent Bob Rice, let down the residents of Wilton. With staunch opposition from town residents, I question the motive for pushing these changes through. Residents should have been given the opportunity to vote on these changes as they conflicted with the vision set forth in the Town Master Plan.

Q: What is the biggest difference between you and your opponents?

McEachron: While I'm a lifelong Republican, I am not a member of the Wilton Republican Committee, a group seemingly determined to ensure Wilton conforms to the views of a very select few. Unlike my opponents, I will listen to and engage with town residents. My decisions will reflect the desires of the community as a whole.
