DARIEN, Conn. -- The Darien Daily Voice accepts signed letters to the editor. Send letters to email@example.com.
To The Editor:
I have always been a reliable Republican voter. In fact, I can only recall having voted for two Democrats: Willie Brown and Ed Rendell. I plan to add Shannon Silsby to this list.
While Shannon and I spar over national political issues, there is no disagreement about the priority of educating our children and ensuring that the Darien school system remains at the vanguard of education.
These are challenging times within the system. Throughout her professional career, Shannon has dealt with complex problems and large budgets. She will bring much-needed business acumen to decisions around how our Town makes its biggest investments – those in our children. I will have greater confidence in a Board of Education that includes Shannon.
There is nothing partisan about maintaining the excellence of the Darien school system. Please join me in November in casting a ballot for Shannon Silsby for the Board of Education.
