NORWALK, Conn. – This letter to the editor is from Democratic mayoral candidate Andy Garfunkel, who currently serves as Norwalk town clerk.
This election cycle will provide voters with one of the most important choices we face today as citizens of Norwalk. I have served this city for 10 years as your town clerk, and now I am running to be your next mayor. But this is not why I write to you today. On Nov. 8 you have three candidates to choose from to be your next town clerk.
David Jaeger is a current member of Norwalk's Common Council and a bank officer in his professional life. He has not only provided Norwalk with great representation on our council, but has been a very loyal friend to me. Together we have hit the streets, knocking on doors and meeting voters. In addition, almost every night, David has continued to introduce himself to you with other candidates as well. David has been in constant contact with the voters of our city and will continue to be heavily involved as your next town clerk.
I have had the privilege of working with David and I believe that Norwalk citizens who are raising families here, who are extremely dedicated to our city, will recognize, along with me, that David is devoted to our city. He has grown up in Norwalk and will soon be raising a family here, as he and his wife are expecting their first child in November. I can tell you first-hand that David is concise and considerate, and his work ethic is unparalleled.
On Nov. 8 you have a choice as to who your next leaders in Norwalk will be. When it comes to choosing your next town clerk, I hope you will consider David Jaeger.
