Let’s give our first responders the resources they need to keep us safe

The Greenwich Fire Department was without a ladder truck for a period of time a couple weeks ago and had to scramble to make arrangements with the city of Stamford for coverage. Since then the repairs have been made and we have a ladder truck back in service. But, this is Greenwich. We shouldn’t operate this way.

We find ourselves in this precarious position because Republicans on the town finance board, the Board of Estimate and Taxation (BET), have been denying and deferring critical equipment requests from our police and fire chiefs for years.

On November 7th you have a chance to elect representatives who value your safety. Vote for the Democratic Team, Row A.

We need a better pedestrian safety plan for Greenwich Avenue

The First Selectman took the police officers off Greenwich Avenue without a plan in place for pedestrian safety. Right now, no one knows what to do. It’s chaotic and it’s dangerous. Instead, the First Selectman is talking about lighting up water fountains in the plaza. Those aren’t priorities. We need to address priority projects.

“I met Laura as a volunteer at Eastern Middle School and we later served on the Greenwich High School PTA Board together and our paths crossed again volunteering for the Greenwich Alliance for Education. …With her background, personality and strong belief in educational equality for every student, she will be a passionate and highly effective First Selectman.” Blakely Stinebaugh
I am writing to highlight Laura Erickson’s integrity, insight, diligence, keen intellect and dedication to service which I have seen over the past five years as we served together on the Board of the Norwalk Community College Foundation. The NCC Foundation of which Laura is a leader provides substantial scholarship support for students and financial support for college programs.
