Vavrek Endorses Kellogg

Monroe First Selectman Steve Vavrek has recommended that Town Councilmember Ken Kellogg be his successor during the upcoming municipal election.   “On November 7,  I endorse Ken Kellogg and I strongly urge the residents of Monroe to do the same," said Vavrek.  “Ken is a leader in Monroe with the experience to make things happen and get things done,” said Vavrek.  “He has demonstrated an ability to work with all interested parties to achieve a common goal.   I have closely watched Ken Kellogg evolve as an individual, as a leader that takes on projects and gets results.”
