This is who I am
I am Rose Reyes, and I am running again for a minority seat on the Windham Town Council to represent Willimantic. When you go to the polls you get to vote for three people and I hope to be one of your three, again.
I want to continue to serve and to support projects that reflect our community's interests and to address the growing needs of our exciting, beautiful town.
