Letter: Pear Tree Point Beach clean up shouldn't have been tied to politics
To the Editor:
The writer is the daughter of Selectman Pamela Sparkman.
Editor's note: The front page of the Nov. 22 Darien Times included a story about some neighbors objecting to some of the proposed renovations to Pear Tree Point Beach. The previous weekend, a clean up of the beach was held by Darien Environmental Group that was attended by Ms. Sparkman and her daughter — at which photos were taken by The Darien Times. Though they were both published on the front page together, the caption on the photo indicated that the photo was taken at the clean up and there was no reference to the story about the renovations. The photo was taken and used to promote that a clean up had occurred, and was used for no other reason. The beach clean up photo was in no way related to the renovations story other than both had to do with the same beach.
