NORWALK, Conn. I just want to take a quick moment to say thank you. I especially wanted to thank the residents of District A, who voted for me in 2009 to represent them on the Common Council. It was a great experience and a fantastic two years.
In those two years we reformed the senior citizen relief program spearheaded by Nora King and myself. Second, we fought for the full funding of education to invest in our children's future and protect the image of Norwalk as a fine city. We supported affordable housing for working individuals at 80 Fair St. even though it was voted down by the majority caucus.
I also wanted to thank the voters in Norwalk as a whole who supported my bid for town clerk. Although we fell short in our effort, a precinct here or there could have made a difference as it was a tremendous challenge going up against Rick McQuaid's name recognition. I wish him luck and am ready to move forward.
I will continue to remain involved with issues in Norwalk through various social organizations and at public meetings. I do intend to be on a ballot again, ready to serve, but it remains to be seen what year or role I pursue.
I must say that at the very least I encourage all residents to become involved in their community, whether it be in elected office, a board or commission, social groups or neighborhood associations. Involvement is important and critical to maintaining a strong community.
