DARIEN, Conn. The following letter is from Darien resident Amy Bell.
When Dave Campbell, Jerry Nielsen and Jayme Stevenson ran for the Board of Selectmen in 2009, they promised to tackle the challenges facing Darien, and voters responded overwhelmingly in their favor. What I hear now from people in town is that they appreciate the upholding of this pledge, especially concerning thornier town issues which seemed to defy resolution in the past.
Successes over the last two years include achieving an affordable housing moratorium , restoring the fireworks tradition, obtaining a practical compromise for town clean-up days , and addressing a dire need for a new senior center, while simultaneously making more efficient use of properties already owned by the town. It's noteworthy that Dave, Jerry and Jayme's proposed facilities move also creates a much-awaited opportunity for affordable senior housing in town.
Under Jayme Stevenson, I look forward to having this positive momentum continue. I have known Jayme for 10 years and worked with her on the Royle School PTO and the Council of Darien School Parents. Her leadership style then, and now, is pragmatic, inclusive, and focused on delivering results.
Please join me in voting for Jayme Stevenson for First Selectman, and Dave Campbell and Jerry Nielsen for Selectman on November 8th.
