To the editor:
State Representative candidate Rob Werner (141st District) is an attorney who has the skills to craft meaningful legislation to address local concerns within the State's frame-work. No matter your feelings about Hartford, we do play in the State's yard.
As a Democrat in the Democratic Party-controlled Assembly, Rob's pragmatic Darien voice is more likely to be heard than the incumbent's, who, after two unchallenged terms, has not successfully influenced her peers to amend Affordable Housing Statute 8-30g.
Patty McCormick and Katie Stein are exceptional Board of Education candidates. Smart and well prepared, both promise to probe policy and program issues to achieve balance between needs and resources, and to deploy Darien's public education dollars effectively and efficiently in the classroom and for facilities.
Make a difference (and good choices). Vote Werner for State Rep., and McCormick and Stein for the Board of Education on No. 6.
Editor's note: You, too, can have your say about the candidates, the election or anything else (just about) in a letter to the editor. Just email Darien@patch.com. Alternately, you could just post your letter as an announcement and the editor will put it on the Home page of Darien Patch. There is no length requirement, although the editor might cut your letter down to a better size if you make it extremely long. You can also post a comment under this or any other letter, if you register as a Darien Patch user (it's pretty simple). Or you could start a blog.
