To the Editor:

With the first quarter of the new year coming in for a landing this week we hope that it has been full of growth for you and your families.  If you are a Darien Democrat and have been thinking about how you can serve our wonderful town in 2019, we invite you to come meet with our Darien Democratic Town Committee Nominating Committee in the next two weeks by emailing me at  There are opportunities on appointed town commissions and advisory boards and elected roles on the Boards of Selectman, Finance, Education, Planning & Zoning as well elected roles that include Town Treasurer, Tax Collector and others. 


Remember that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.  


You can make a difference in Darien by serving. We look forward to meeting you.
