DARIEN, Conn. The following letter was submitted by Darien residents David Kahn and Holly Schulz.
We're writing to express our gratitude for all the support we've received over the past two years from David Bayne during our efforts to encourage the town of Darien to address pedestrian safety issues, specifically sidewalks along Hoyt Street near the Talmadge Hill train station. As commuters, we are personally affected by the lack of pedestrian access to our neighborhood public transit. Many residents of our neighborhood utilize Hoyt Street to walk to work while navigating a road filled with speeding traffic that is still without adequate walkways, signage and lighting despite two solid years of active pleas to address these safety issues. Not one sign has been added, and not one line has been painted.
David Bayne has remained an advocate, continuing to educate us on how to properly move our issue forward, even when faced with the extreme lack of interest, communication and action that we've witnessed from the majority on the current Board of Selectmen. This past weekend, we had the opportunity to meet David's running mate, John Lundeen . It was refreshing to hear him speak of their team's commitment to proactive planning and prioritization of public projects in town to ensure that public safety won't be brushed aside.
We believe that the Darien Working Together team is interested in making our town a more accessible and pedestrian friendly place. Please join us in voting for them.
