To the editor:

Darien has an important choice to make in November in deciding who can best provide the type of strong leadership we’ve come to expect from our first selectman during Jayme Stevenson’s successful tenure.

I would like to share my perspective on candidate Monica McNally with the Darien community, as I had the pleasure of working with her during the campaign to reduce plastic use in Darien, as a co-chair of BYO Darien.

Monica was assigned by the Public Works Committee to present our petition to the full Representative Town Meeting and move the process forward. She performed very diligent research and investigated the potential impact of our petition on the Darien community from all possible angles.

She created very relevant documentation to satisfy questions from the RTM members when she presented the petition to them. Beyond Monica’s ability to accurately process a lot of information, she is excellent at finding the middle ground that satisfies the concerns of both sides.

This link to a article includes a video of Monica’s outstanding presentation to the RTM recommending they vote for the plastic reduction proposal.

Based on my experience working with Monica, I’m convinced that she will bring our town together and is our best option for first selectman.
