To the Editor:

It is important to realize that between the “Best for Darien” Team of Jayme Stevenson, Susan Marks  and Kip Koons, they have almost 100 years of combined business and community service experience.  This experience has been demonstrated repeatedly as our town officials balance the wants and needs or Darien residents with our town’s ability to pay.  It will be critical as we face less and less financial support from the state level.

I have worked personally with Jayme and Susan and adjectives that come to mind are:

thoughtful, intelligent, transparent, collaborative and leaders.  They are committed to making life better for all including seniors, youth and our most vulnerable citizens. We are fortunate that they are willing to continue to serve.

Please join me in voting for Jayme, Susan and Kip on Nov. 7.
