To the editor:
If 2021 has taught us anything, it is that who we elect can make a big difference in the quality of our lives and the health of our democracy. The contrast between the Biden and Trump Administrations cannot have made that point any clearer.
However, the point is just as true for municipal elections as it for federal ones. Who we elect to govern Darien can make a big difference in the quality of our lives. Town government is responsible for our schools, our roads, our parks and beaches, solid waste disposal and recycling, and, most importantly, our local public health.
Do our leaders listen and respond to our concerns? Do their decisions reflect our values and priorities?
In November 2021, the voters of Darien will have the opportunity to choose who will govern Darien for the next two years.
Positions are available on every elected board and commission as well as town clerk, treasurer, tax collector and members of the Representative Town Meeting. They include first selectman, the Board of Selectmen, the Board of Education, the Planning & Zoning Commission, the Board of Finance and the Board of Assessment Appeals.
The Darien Democrats will be interviewing Democrats and unaffiliated voters interested in these positions soon.
If you would like to speak with us about one of those positions, or, if you would just like to learn more about how you can make a difference in our community, then please contact the Darien Democratic Town Committee at our website or email us at email@example.com.
You can also reach and/or follow us at @DarienDemocrats on Twitter and Instagram as well as on Facebook.
