Letter to the Editor: Support Griswold, Kerr for Honesty, Integrity, and to Retain Old Lyme Charm

To the Editor:

It is my honor and pleasure to offer this letter of support for Tim Griswold and Chris Kerr for Old Lyme First Selectman and Old Lyme Board of Selectman.
Both Tim and Chris have a demonstrated track record of honesty, integrity and thoughtful, reasoned leadership.
Both seek local solutions and change informed by Old Lyme stake holders. Tim and Chris possess inherent skills and embrace basic tenets of transparency in good governance in providing leadership on behalf of all of the town’s citizens.
Tim and Chris capably understand the nuances of how Old Lyme and New England more broadly comprise the land of steady habits. As such, radical plans for large scale housing developments, town wide sewers, or other state influenced or state sponsored initiatives that significantly change what gives Old Lyme its classic New England small town charm are not necessary and not wanted.
Voters should ask themselves why they originally chose to reside in Old Lyme. If one wishes to have the things that drove that choice unmolested together with a public policy that is averse to increases in local taxes, then the only decision on November 5th is to cast your vote for Tim Griswold, Chris Kerr, and the entire team on Row B.

Christopher Carter,
Old Lyme.
