To the Editor:
I don’t often write letters endorsing candidates because, like many of you who have lived and volunteered in this town for several decades, we are friends, neighbors, and volunteers who work and live harmoniously for 364 days of the year.
On Election Day, however, we must decide among many well-qualified candidates from both sides. Some vote strictly by party, others do not. For this year’s race I highly recommend Colm Dobbyn for Town Council. He has lived in New Canaan for 26 years, has served on Inland Wetlands Commission for 14 years, while raising two children and brings to the table a sharp analytical mind. Colm can focus on the issues, rather than play politics. His only agenda is to do the best he can to serve all of us to make New Canaan a fine community. According to the town website, the primary responsibilities of Town Council encompass bylaws, ordinances and approval of appropriations. These are all skill sets that Colm Dobbyn possesses.
