Encourages Republicans in town to vote at July caucus

To the Editor:

As a rank and file Republican in Fairfield, who does not hold any political office and is not seeking any political office at this time, I am looking forward to taking 10 minutes out of my day on July 23 to participate in nominating the Republican slate of candidates, which should appear on the ballot for the all important mid-term municipal election this fall. I encourage all Republicans to do the same and exercise their rights as town Republicans.

Sometime between 4 and 8 p.m., at Fairfield Ludlowe High School in the Lecture Hall, I will  cast a private paper ballot for the candidates of my choice for RTM, TPZ, ZBA and BOE. While the process is referred to as a caucus in politics-speak, I do not expect to see anyone smoking cigars in the cloak room and I do not expect that I will be button-hoiled by any politician. In fact, the politicians have to steer clear of the ballot box just as they do in a primary or general election.

The races are sizing up to be a very interesting, particularly with respect to the BOE and the RTM in District 1, where I live.

Many years ago in New Hampshire, the live free or die state, I saw a mural painted on a garage door with an American eagle and the saying, “Four boxes protect our freedoms: The soap box, the ballot box, the jury box and the ammo box. I will leave the last one to the Department of Defense.”

Please vote if you are a Fairfield Republican and vote Republican.
