Watch Charlie on Newington Cable Television (March 26, 2012)


In South Windsor the town council candidate who is the highest voter getter in the majority party becomes mayor. I had run in six prior campaigns and was always elected to the Town Council, but never as mayor. I experienced the meaning of the saying always a bridesmaid, never the bride. Then I met Charlie. During my sixth term he worked with me on my verbal deliveries, and my messages became direct and clear. On my seventh run for office we worked on message content. As he pointed out I had all the right ingredients; I just had to get the right mix. As the new Mayor of South Windsor I highly endorse Charlie and the excellent work of his company.

John Pelkey, Mayor, South Windsor, CT
