LETTER: I’m choosing Kevin Kiley

To the Editor:

On June 6, the people of Fairfield will make their choice to fill the seat on the Board of Selectman. I am choosing Kevin Kiley.

To me, the choice is between someone who has, and wants to continue, to solve problems for the people of Fairfield and understands democracy as the will of the people over the will of any party, and someone who is interested in serving only his party.

Kevin believes in governing. He has the knowledge and experience to do it well. He believes in bringing people together to solve problems, in hearing and considering differing ideas and approaches, in decision-making by compromise and consensus. This is Connecticut’s heritage, its history.

Kevin has enough respect for Fairfield voters that, ever since his nomination, he has been walking Fairfield’s neighborhoods, knocking on doors, introducing himself, and talking with Fairfield’s citizens about their concerns and interests. He recognizes that any government official’s first duty is to people, not party. And when asked a question for which he doesn’t know the answer, he’s not afraid to say “I don’t know but I will find out.”

Kevin has served Fairfield for 22 years: four years on the RTM, 15 years on the Board of Finance—five years as Chairman—and three years on the Board of Selectmen. I’ll be voting for Kevin Kiley on June 6 because he understands Fairfield, democracy, and government—and has respect for all three. He knows that it is people who count, not power.

I’ve heard Kevin say, “I believe in government that is respectful and fair to all Fairfield citizens. Lately, these attributes have been missing in our local government.” Yes, they have. And I hope you will join me in voting for Kevin Kiley on June 6 to turn that around.
