DARIEN, Conn. The following letter was submitted by Darien resident Cassandra Hegarty.
I am writing to express my support for the campaign of John Lundeen, David Bayne, and Vickie Riccardo and to encourage Darien voters to set aside party affiliations and vote for the best team for the job on Nov. 8. I firmly believe that the Darien Working Together team has the right experience, perspective and determination to continue to make our town a pleasant, safe and affordable place to live and work.
Since moving to Darien four years ago, I have been impressed with David Bayne's tireless activism for the community, especially on issues such as public safety. He demands results, voices concerns, promotes accountability and is responsive to the concerns of townspeople.
I recently met John Lundeen at a neighborhood rally to discuss the Hoyt Street sidewalk issue . I was impressed with his proposed proactive solutions to pedestrian safety and other town issues such as affordable housing and the budgeting process. I feel that that he possesses similar characteristics to Mr. Bayne qualities that I believe all of our town leaders, regardless of their political party affiliation should display. In particular, Lundeen and his colleagues' drive to scrutinize capital projects and restore fiscal responsibility to our town is critical for our future. If the Shuffle project moves forward as proposed, our town will reach its debt ceiling, putting Darien in a precarious financial situation especially if an unforeseen project expenditure comes to light.
I believe that Lundeen, Bayne and Riccardo will give thorough appraisal to this project and other matters and will present refreshing alternatives. I encourage all Darien voters to support them at the polls next week.
