Letter to the Editor: Rubino Has a World View That Can be Applied Locally, Beneficially

To the Editor:

These days the world is more connected than ever before.  One thing we’ve learned from COVID-19 is that something going on anywhere in the world can have a quick and substantial impact here in our hometown.  We need leadership who understands this connectivity on all levels and can help us manage our relationship with the world while also maintaining the unique nature of our small towns.

Dave Rubino and his family have lived around the globe and witnessed all forms of government. They chose to end up here in the 23rd District, near where Dave’s wife grew up, to start a law practice, raise their family, and now, participate in state governance.  Dave knows how to do this and he understands us, in ways that Devin Carney does not. He will be getting my vote on November 3rd.

Mara Lowry,
Old Lyme.

Letter to the Editor: Lowry Seeks Election to Old Lyme ZBA, Believes in Retention of Spirit, Integrity of Zoning Regulations’

To the Editor:

My name is Mara Lowry and I am running for the Old Lyme Zoning Board of Appeals because, as a long-time area resident and mother of two young children, I am invested in continuing the safety and unique character of Old Lyme. I believe firmly in maintaining the spirit and integrity of our zoning regulations, as they are intended to uphold these values.  At the same time, I understand that occasional common-sense exceptions are vital to ensuring the livability of our town. 

If elected I will listen carefully and consider respectfully the perspectives of all stakeholders. I am committed to fairness and equity before the law and will put the quality of life in Old Lyme–now and for generations to come–over the interests of any individual or interest group. I hope that you will allow me the opportunity to serve as your representative to the Zoning Board of Appeals by voting for me this November.

Sincerely,

Mara Lowry,
Old Lyme.
