To the editor:
This election is not about you vs. me or blue vs. red, this is about every citizen of Darien and what’s best for our community.
We need leaders who will listen to and represent every single one of us. We need leaders who are empathetic, respectful, solution seeking and forward thinking, such as Marcy Minnick.
As a mother, a business owner, a mentor, and most importantly a community leader, Marcy is the right person to represent all of us on the Board of Selectman.
I met Marcy when our oldest children started Ox Ridge School in first grade. Our girls were waitlisted for the Girl Scout troop, so Marcy stepped up and started an additional troop to ensure every girl who was looking to belong and explore scouting could be included.
This additional troop enabled over a dozen girls to join Girl Scouts, not just at Ox Ridge but across Darien (from private schools and other Darien elementary schools). While this is a simple example, it demonstrates Marcy’s commitment for seeking and implementing solutions to benefit our community.
Marcy Minnick is always striving to improve Darien, from Girl Scout leader, PTO leadership roles, mentoring young women through Big Brothers Big Sisters, volunteering for non-profits, and participating on the Darien Representative Town Meeting, her goal is to continue to make Darien a great place for all of us.
Marcy will work to represent all citizens, ensuring Darien will be an inclusive, happy, healthy, prosperous town for all! Please join me in voting for Marcy Minnick for Board of Selectman on on Nov. 2.
Editor’s note: Election letters will be accepted up to 11:59 p.m., THIS Thursday, Oct. 28, 2021.
