To the editor:

On Monday, May 16, I attended the Republican State House Representative Convention and had the privilege of nominating Terrie Wood for a fifth term as the state representative for District 141, which includes Rowayton and most of Darien.

State Rep. Terrie Wood (R-141st District)

Personally, I was relieved and grateful Terrie was willing to serve as our State Representative for another term, as I have consistently been impressed by her energy, her enthusiasm, her passion for the job, her bipartisan approach to solving problems, and most important, her sincere and never-ending efforts to represent all of her constituents in District 141, regardless of their political affiliation.

Always the optimist, Terrie genuinely believes Connecticut’s current fiscal problems can be mitigated and turned around, and she’s willing to commit the time and energy to make this happen.

She has the drive and the proven leadership experience we need right now to tackle the many issues we face in our community and in Hartford. We are indeed fortunate to have a candidate who has a sound understanding of the issues that need to be addressed, a clear vision of the work that needs to be accomplished on our behalf, and the ability to achieve meaningful results for all of us in District 141.
