Diana Serra, 52
Democrat, Town Council
Married 22 years to Bob Serra Sr., with one stepson and 2 granddaughters
Education: St. Paul’s Catholic High School, Briarwood College
Profession: Accounting Manager
Public service: I have been a town councilor for the last 2 years, serving as a liaison to Newington EMS, Parks & Recreation, Board of Education, and NCTV. I am a member of the Standing Insurance Committee and Employee Benefits, Pension and Insurance Committee.
If elected, I would like to work towards increasing our tax revenue. Property taxes are a major issue in town. In order to provide the necessary town services we need to increase our tax base by aggressively pursuing new business to relocate to Newington, by redeveloping our vacant commercial properties. I strongly feel that with my experience I have gained over the last two years as a town councilor combined with my professional training and experience as well as life’s lessons, I am prepared to deal with both the current challenges that Newington faces and all future challenges that may arise.
