To the editor:

The Darien DTC has met with most of the candidates in the August 14 primary and endorses Ned Lamont for governor, Susan Bysiewicz for lieutenant governor and Darien’s own former state Representative William Tong for attorney general.

For Treasurer, both Dita Bhargava and Shawn Wooden have garnered much respect and no endorsement was given. Both are excellent candidates.

There are two long years left to the Trump Administration, and the first line of defense to its assault on the truth, the values of inclusiveness and an open society will be in Hartford. It is imperative that Democratic primary voters endorse an electable ticket.

Voter turnout is expected to be low. Darien’s Democrats will, therefore, have a greater opportunity than normal to have their voices heard. If you will not be in town on August 14, please go to the Town Clerk’s Office and cast a ballot before you leave.

David Bayne

Chair, Darien Democratic Town Committee
