LETTER: Dru Georgiadis for State Rep 132nd District

Letter-to-the-EditorNEWTo the Editor:

We are experiencing and seeing play out on the national stage what is shaping up to be an unprecedented political election.  This calls for us in the community to not shun our civic responsibility, but to embrace and support our neighbors and our friends who are up to the task to run for office in our local districts.

It is through them and because of them that this election year can usher in fresh candidates who listen and learn at home here in Fairfield, the compelling issues and needs from a wide range of constituents. We need a strong leader who cares and has the experience and leadership skills to be the voice of Fairfield in Hartford. My friend, Dru Georgiadis is this candidate.

Dru and I met as new moms, both of us with sons, now 21 when we were introduced by our au pairs who were a tightknit group of young women who helped look after our kids as we worked full time. Dru is still in touch with all of them twenty years later.  This is a testament to the role Dru plays in the community. She is a born organizer, always a community activist.

Dru is a woman who accomplishes much.  She worked full time in the magazine publishing industry for several Fortune 500, commuted daily on Metro-north, and could be found when she had a spare moment to be the ‘handyman’ in her house, glue gun in hand, while making dinner from scratch, and always willing to take the extra trip, lend a hand to anyone in need. 

Her family grew ‘fast’ when Dru and her husband Martin welcomed triplet boys-and even with 4 under 4, Dru not only continued to be a selfless and first to offer her time and support to anyone who was in need. She volunteered, served on numerous boards, the PTA for 15 years, receiving the 2008 leadership award. She was nominated and ran for RTM in District 9, and serves on the committee for senior tax relief.

Everyone who will meet Dru in the coming months, as she plans to knock on every door in her district personally will encounter a most genuine, compassionate and authentic candidate.  I have yet to meet anyone with her tireless energy and willingness to serve.  It takes skill, leadership and a determined candidate who listens and cares deeply for her community, for us. 

Dru Georgiadis is the person we need representing us as State Representative.  Please vote for Dru Georgiadis this November.
