By Tammy Langalis
Commissioner, Sixth Taxing District
To the Editor:
After six years on the 6th Taxing District Commission, I would like thank all of the people who have worked with me during that time. It has been an exciting and challenging time. We have faced Superstorm Sandy and hurricane Irene and we have made some large long term investments in the properties we manage. There is rarely a dull moment.
I would like to endorse the recently announced candidacies of Dave McCarthy and Emily Wilson for the Common Council in District E. As DPW chairman, Dave has accomplished many good things for Rowayton and the rest of the city. Having seen Emily’s work on the Zoning Commission, I know she will be an excellent councilperson, fair minded and a consensus builder.
I think my efforts in the 6th Taxing District will be multiplied with their presence on the council, but it is really our mayor, Richard Moccia, who I believe will keep all of Norwalk moving in the right direction. The last eight years have seen tremendous challenges for Norwalk, but under the mayor’s firm and steady leadership, we have met each challenge head on, and the city continues to thrive. With the West Ave. redevelopment and many improvements to our infrastructure, Norwalk continues to attract new people to our vibrant community.
As a Republican, I am excited to work closely with all of the members of the Republican slate once they are elected. I wish them every success in our convention this Monday and in the election this fall. I will continue to work with my colleagues on the Taxing District Commission, and will hold them to the highest standards in the work that we will do for the citizens of Rowayton maintaining our fiscally responsible house.
