DARIEN, Conn. The following letter is by Darien resident Shawn St. Jean.
For just a minute, forget that you consider yourself a Republican or a Democrat. Forget all of the noise in Hartford and Washington that divides us. Focus on the issues facing our town; issues that can't be placed into red or blue, Republican or Democrat boxes. These are issues about our quality of life.
We are so fortunate to live in a town with incredible schools, gorgeous parks and beaches, and wonderful shops and restaurants. When it comes to a first selectman, we need the most capable and qualified person we can find, someone who will work tirelessly to continue improving our quality of life. That person is John Lundeen .
John's background is truly impressive. With a master's in public policy from Harvard, work as a budget analyst for the White House under both Reagan and Carter, and a long career on Wall Street, John has the experience, skills, knowledge and judgment to best lead Darien. And with his extensive community involvement, it's easy to see how much he really cares about this town.
On Nov. 8, I won't be thinking red versus blue, I'll be voting for John Lundeen because he's the best choice to lead Darien.
