Letter: Quentin Phipps's Banking Expertise Makes Him Top City Treasurer Candidate

Reader: Citizens will be impressed with his dedication, intelligence and resourcefulness.

To the Editor:

I ask for your support by voting for Quentin Phipps for Middletown city treasurer in the general election on Nov. 8.

Mr. Phipps — "Q" to his friends — has extensive financial experience as a bank manager. What makes him unique from other candidates is his willingness to completely immerse himself in the position, and resulting success he has achieved in these roles. I expect no less from him as city treasurer, just as he has done as the chairman of Planning and Zoning.

I have served with Q on several organizations, and cannot emphasize enough to voters how impressed they will be with his dedication, intelligence and resourcefulness in finding solutions for the citizens of Middletown.

This Election Day, make a great choice. Vote for Quentin Phipps for city treasurer.

Adam Stillman, Old Saybrook

I agree, what is that supposed to mean? This letter to the editor is long on fluff and bluster and completely lacking in any real content. I mean c'mon, this guy is only 27 years old, I highly doubt he's a "bank manager" at age 27 and we have a guy from Old Saybrook singing his praises? Seems pretty weak to me.

Hmmm, his LinkedIn resume claims he's a "Branch Manager" for the huge (LOL) Guilford Savings Bank yet his name isn't listed as a Branch Manager for any of the Guilford Savings Bank's branches on its website. He also says he used to work at Bank of America for a couple of years. Bank of America to Guilford Savings? Wow, I wouldn't exactly call that "moving up" in the world of banking, quite the opposite actually.
