To the Editor:

Everyone wants what's best for Newtown, we just have different approaches to making that happen. Dan Rosenthal and Maureen Crick Owen's approach is one I wholeheartedly support. Their commitment to the history of Newtown, bonded with their commitment to future growth, fiscal health, and educational success is evident, and their overwhelming effort at inclusion instead of exclusion refreshing. All across town, you will find old-time Newtown as well as new arrivals, people of both parties, people of all ages and positions in life, pledging votes to this formidable team.

When our national government is in such disarray with prevalent infighting and unrecognizable values, we have the opportunity to act locally, and keep our corner of the world socially conscious and fiscally responsible. With open conversation and a solid plan to create a safe, affordable, educated community where all people who call Newtown home can thrive, Dan and Maureen show the dedication, experience, and will to get this done.

I thank all of our community members who step up to make the town a better place, and encourage residents to let their voices be heard on Election Day. Please vote, and remind your friends and neighbors to vote as well, and elect Dan and Maureen, as well as the best team possible to govern the place we all love to call home.

Kindly,
Kathryn Mayer
