DARIEN, Conn. – A discussion of guns in American will kick off a new speaker series Saturday, Feb. 9, hosted by the Darien Democratic Town Committee.
Participants will include Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen, Darien Schools Superintendent Stephen Falcone, Darien Police Chief Duane Lovello and Ron Pinciaro, executive director of Connecticut Against Gun Violence.
The talk is the first in the series titled "Policy Matters: Conversations that Strengthen our Community." They will be held quarterly and focus on national issues that impact Darien. Future talks may include a women's health forum, helping senior citizens and staying solvent in the new economy.
"The Darien DTC is very excited to bring this speaker series to our town. We felt that it was important to look beyond party lines and bring people together to discuss issues that really matter to our families and neighbors,” said Rachel Martin, chair of the DTC Issues Committee. “We hope that others see this is a great way to stimulate conversation in our community.”
The talk, free and open to the public, will take place at 11 a.m. at the Darien Library.
