Encourages Fairfielders to vote on Nov. 4

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor:

We have no right to complain about high taxes and cost of living, deflating home values and escalating health and security threats or the specter of predatory developers using state laws to force high-rise constructions into our quiet, peaceful and safe neighborhoods.

We can’t whine about Common Core and other bank-breaking unfunded school mandates of disputed value coming down from the state and the federal EPA.

We can’t bemoan the lack of jobs for our college-graduated children and out-of-work neighbors. Unless we stand up and vote this Nov. 4.

Did you know that HUD, who is investigating our own Plan and Zoning decisions, is itself before the Supreme Court charged with discrimination?

Did you know that the largest (by far) employer in Fairfield is the town government and its school district? Private sector jobs are fleeing daily due to a hostile business climate.

The number of registered voters who actually voted in key elections over the past decade are among the lowest in recent history.

Get registered. Get your neighbors and voting-age children registered. Fill out your absentee ballots. We decide or others will decide for us. They may not have our best interests at heart.
