Letter to the Editor: It’s Time for Change, Rubino Will Promote Climate of Equality as State Rep.

To the Editor:

I met Dave Rubino last year while working on a local election in Old Lyme.  You learn a lot about a person when you are knocking on doors and phone calling together.  I was immediately drawn to his passion to serve the people.  As a Human Rights Lawyer, who has work in the US and overseas, he has a breadth of knowledge and experience about creating a climate of equality that we desperately need in our country right now.

I realize we don’t have term limits, but I only wish we did.  I do believe that even the best intentioned politician loses their passion after a certain amount of time in office.  Although well meaning, I do believe Devin Carney has lost his edge for serving the people and putting his heart into his responsibilities as the State Representative.  It is through the ballot box that we can enact term limits and bring a fresh perspective to and energy for our district state representative. seat.  The year 2020 is a time for change.  I trust Dave Rubino and I plan to support him with my vote on Election Day.  I hope you will join me!

Sincerely,

Kathleen Tracy,
Old Lyme.

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!

Sincerely,

Kathleen Tracy,
Old Lyme.
