An Expat Talks about Living in Trumbull, Connecticut

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Trumbull

In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

Not a diverse town racially. Religiously - much more diverse. More accepting of diversity than Texas (where we have since moved).

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

Main industries are service and offices. Limited career in town, but Fairfield County has many head offices of Fortune 500 companies. Sikorsky Aircraft (shrinking) & other defense contractors.

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

Suburban community. Work & family mainly. Active children's sport activities (Little League Champions, hockey, etc.)

If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.

Bring money - Fairfield is the first or second most expensive county in the US. Trumbull is at the least expensive end - furthest from NYC. Very nice environment however. Close to NYC & in New England.
