To the editor:
I’d like to thank the nearly 100 people that turned out for the Darien Democratic Town Committee’s “Summer Cooler” fundraiser on Sunday. It was an amazing event graciously hosted by MaryEllen and Scott Moore. The impressive attendance showed tremendous support for our Democratic candidates and elected officials. The highlight of the evening was a wonderful speech by our featured guest, Connecticut’s First Lady Cathy Malloy.
We are so fortunate to have such an incredible group of people in Connecticut dedicated to public service. And how lucky we were to have several of them in attendance on Sunday, including:
- Senator Richard Blumenthal
- Senator Bob Duff
- Senator Carlo Leone
- Rob Werner, Candidate for State Rep, 141st district
- David Bayne and John Lundeen, Darien Board of Selectmen
- Martha Banks, Vice Chair Darien Board of Finance
- Jim Plutte and Heather Shea, Darien Board of Education
- Patty McCormick and Katie Stein, Candidates for the Darien Board of Education
Chairman, Darien DTC
