To the Editor: When I envision someone whom I would greatly appreciate to see represent Newtown in a political capacity, the following attributes enter my mind. I first picture a person who has an overall love for people as a human race, and the belief that it is important to look for the best in each other. I think about an individual who has very strong beliefs in the utmost importance of supporting our beloved Newtown Schools.
To the Editor, I am writing in support of Rebekah Harriman-Stites’s candidacy for a seat on the Newtown Board of Education. I have witnessed firsthand that Rebekah cares deeply for the educational needs of our children; she is committed to their education and will be effective at getting the job done. Rebekah comes to the table prepared and open-minded, ready to use her experience both with her volunteer work and her career as a business owner.
To the Editor, Like so many towns across our nation, Newtown faces a number of challenges. In the upcoming election, residents of District 2 have an opportunity to vote for Legislative Council representatives that have the skills, the experience, and the dedication to lead our town toward a path of fiscal responsibility while maintaining the quality of life we seek.
To the Editor:
For the past 12 years I have had the honor of serving Newtown on the Board of Finance but I have decided to step aside this election (along with fellow board members John Kortze, Harry Waterbury, and Mike Portnoy). It would take several letters to the editor to list my colleagues’ many contributions to the town, and I wish to thank them all for their service.
To the Editor: As a longstanding member of the Board of Finance, I’d like to express my support for Sandy Roussas for Board of Finance. As new candidates step forward to fill the vacancies on the Board of Finance, I feel confident in Sandy’s abilities and qualifications to carry out her duties as a member of this board successfully.
