The Life Solution Center of Darien™ is pleased to announce that former U.S. Congressman and current United States Senate candidate Christopher Shays will be speaking at their networking meeting on June 12th. Offering what many consider to be a more moderate perspective from the right, Shays will discuss the future of healthcare and small businesses with The Life Solution Center of Darien™ Partners and invited officials of the Darien Community.
"I'm grateful for the opportunity to speak to members of such a wonderful, community-oriented organization," says Christopher Shays, Republican candidate for United States Senate. "The Life Solution Center of Darien provides essential resources for those truly in need. Given that Darien is the town where Betsi and I grew up, it has an extra special place in my heart.”
A recent poll by Quinnipiac University shows Christopher Shays is in a dead heat with the leading Democrat in a general election match-up, whereas Shays' Republican opponent Linda McMahon loses to the Democrat by 15 points.
Shays' experience includes 21 years in Congress, 13 years as a member of the General Assembly, and most recently as the co-chair of the Commission on Wartime Contracting in Afghanistan and Iraq, where he helped identify between $30 and $60 billion of waste, fraud and abuse. While in Congress, he co-sponsored the Balanced Budget Amendment and served as a senior member of the Budget Committee during the Clinton Administration, playing an integral role in balancing the budget for four years. Shays has exhibited critical response in Government Reform, taking on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac before the 2008 economic meltdown and helping to pass the Welfare Reform Act, as well as in improving National Security, where he assisted in reducing our trade deficit.
“We’re honored to have Christopher Shays speak to our Partners,” says Maud Purcell, MSW, LCSW, CEAP, Founder and Executive Director of The Life Solution Center of Darien™. “We’re so grateful that he will make time in his busy schedule to address our questions and concerns at such a crucial turning point for the future of our country.
Purcell founded The Life Solution Center of Darien™ in 2009 to meet a common and prevalent need amongst her clients, as well as her colleagues. In her 25 years of practicing psychotherapy, Purcell’s discovered that clients facing difficult life transitions lacked the emotional resources, motivation, and information to make significant improvements in their lives. Whether the changes were legal, financial, organizational, career-oriented, or personal in nature, they were frequently unable to follow through with the referrals Purcell gave them, even with the best of intentions. Purcell’s logical conclusion was to bring all of these referral businesses and practices under one roof as Partners, providing easy access for her clients, and a ready network of potential clientele for all participating businesses.
Shay’s knowledge and experience come at a particularly appropriate time for The Life Solution Center of Darien™. The young, bourgeoning business has become pivotal in the lives of so many community members that it’s recently considered looking at possibilities for expansion to help an even greater cross-section of people.
