I am writing in support of Terrie Wood’s candidacy to represent Darien and Norwalk as our state representative. I believe that Terrie’s socially responsible positions on issues such as reproductive rights and the environment along with her commitment to working toward bipartisan solutions to the important fiscal challenges facing Connecticut make her exactly the sort of candidate we need to support. In a time of deep political divisions, Terrie exemplifies the type of sensible, cooperative, outcome-focused legislator we need to see more of. Let’s make Connecticut a model for real bipartisan government that works. Melissa McKeithen

In 2008, when Terrie Wood was running for state representative in the 141st district, a very wise woman said, “Terrie listens first, questions, then acts.”
As I sat down to write a letter of support for Terrie this year, I realized those words are still so true. Darien, Norwalk and Rowayton are so fortunate to have Terrie representing us in Hartford. Terrie reaches out to her constituents. She listens to what they have to say. She represents us well in Hartford, and she holds many legislative updates to keep us informed about what is going on in the state.
I am thankful for all of the hard work Terrie Wood has done in Hartford and she deserves our support again in November. Over the course of five terms, Terrie has consistently provided thoughtful and respectful leadership in Hartford. As the state and national electorate grow increasingly divisive, Terrie crosses the aisle and works for her constituency rather than partisan politics. She brings focus and is a voice of reason for many important issues including fiscal responsibility, mental health, substance abuse, and dyslexia. I am grateful that Terrie Wood is once again running for State Representative of the 141st District (Darien and Norwalk).
Our community is so fortunate to have Terrie Wood as our state representative for the 141st District – Norwalk and Darien. Her ability to work across the aisle, be open-minded, balanced and thoughtful in creating state policies to truly represent all of her constituents is what makes her such an effective leader. Connecticut’s current state of crisis requires responsible politicians like Terrie. Her focus on common sense solutions is the type of leadership that will help stabilize our economy and create an environment for growth in our state. Terrie also understands our communities and the evolving needs for improved education, healthcare, transportation and environmental policies which will ensure a better future for all of us and our children.
I am writing in support of Terrie Wood’s candidacy to once again represent Darien and Norwalk in Hartford as our state representative for the 141st District. Having known her personally for over 10 years, and watched her work tirelessly to advocate for our town and the state’s best interests during her first five terms, Terrie has consistently proven to be a tough, but fair and balanced public servant. In an environment too often dominated by bipartisan inertia, Terrie has demonstrated both the strength of character to stand up for what is right for her constituency, as well as the wisdom and flexibility to reach across the aisle when leadership is required to drive common sense solutions for the state of Connecticut. Be it her thorough understanding of the financial issues facing our state or her compassion to embrace and work to address social issues, Terrie is the right woman for the job. Matthew Troy

Editor’s note: State Rep. Terrie Wood, a Republican who represents the 141st district in the state House of Representatives, emailed this message to constituents on Monday about various new state laws that she supported and that take effect today, Monday, Oct. 1:
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
A number of new laws passed during the 2018 Legislative Session take effect today,Oct 1. These laws may have an impact on you, your business, or our community.To see a full list, please click here. I am pleased to have supported the following Public Acts in becoming law:
Public Act 18-90 prevents credit agencies from charging fees for security freezes and doubles (from one year to two) the amount of time businesses have to provide free credit monitoring if an account is hacked. Public Act 18-29 bans the sale or transfer, possession, manufacturing or use ofbump stocks or other accessories to increase the rate of fire of a firearm. Public Act 18-135 criminalizes the act of masking the identity of a caller initiatingrobo calls.
There could not be a more important time to have Terrie Wood serving as our state representative. Amidst all the anger and vitriol on today’s political stage, Terrie carries the proverbial olive branch. Fiscally conservative and socially responsible, Terrie delivers on all that is important to Connecticut. Her listening skills are second to none, and I have to imagine her thoughtful approach and respect for all make her the most well-liked politician in Hartford. Terrie’s work on the Human Services Committee as well as Finance, Revenue & Bonding has been nothing short of exceptional. Her passion for and commitment to mental health, dyslexia and gun violence issues as well as fiscal discipline for Connecticut make her the most balanced, responsible legislator we could possibly hope for.
Starred and striped U.S. flags should not be used if they’re torn, too worn or tattered, and the federal U.S. Flag Code says they should be properly disposed of, not just tossed in the trash. There’s a way to do that in Darien right now, state Rep. Terrie Wood says. “Following our Memorial Day observations and in anticipation of Flag Day, my office is offering a way for Norwalk and Darien residents to dispose of their worn or unserviceable American flags in a dignified and respectful way,” Wood said in a recent news release. Darien VFW Post No. 6933 and Riverside Cemetery in Norwalk are offering the service together with Wood. You can drop off flags, at no charge.
