Letter to the Editor: Tracy Wants to bring ‘Fresh Voice, New Ideas’ to Old Lyme ZBA

To the Editor:

I am running for the office of Zoning Board of Appeals in the town of Old Lyme.  

I have been a resident of Old Lyme for fourteen years and I consider my home here a part of heaven!  I value my home and my neighbors who share this beautiful place with me. I live near the shoreline and I believe the members of this community need to have a stronger voice in town governance.  

Giving back to the community that I enjoy so much is one of the main reasons I decided to run for office. I have seen the positive growth of the town with the current administration but I also believe more voices need to be heard.  I hope to work with our town leaders to unite our town for the benefit of all. I have not always been pleased with the current ZBA and I think it could use a fresh voice and new ideas. I believe my background as an educator has given me the skills to think critically about situations presented to the ZBA and also make choices that will take into consideration all points of view.

I would appreciate your vote on November 5th at the Cross Lane Firehouse.  Together we do make a difference!


Kathleen Tracy,
Old Lyme.
