Responsible representation for District C

Send signed letters to [email protected]

Time and again in recent years, our Council has been asked to approve items for which the impacts were not fully known at the time of the vote. Some decisions bind future Council members despite the preferences of the community, and well after the impacts become known.

 

This is why it is so important to elect Council members who take the time to do their homework and to ask questions as decisions are undertaken. Asking questions can lead to better information, more robust deliberations, and ultimately, much better outcomes.

 

We have a stellar candidate for one of the two in-district seats on the Common Council for District C and her name is Beth Siegelbaum. Beth is reliable, ethical and diligent. She possesses the temperament required to be an excellent representative. When combined with her 35 years living in District C, I am confident that she will contribute to excellent decision-making on behalf of the district.

 

Beth is committed to ensuring the best quality of life for our citizens, with excellent schools and enrichment programs after school for our young, high quality services for those that wish to age-in-place, efficient transportation for the working person, and preservation of our historic assets, open spaces and peaceful enjoyment of our neighborhoods.

 

After Election Day, the Council will be facing complex and challenging issues with long-term impacts on our community, as the state moves forward on projects like the Walk Bridge and the lowering of the East Avenue roadway.

 

Beth applies herself tirelessly to her commitments and volunteers extensively. It has been my privilege to work with her over the years and I look forward to having someone on the Council who will have our District’s interests as a priority.

 

Please join me in casting your vote to elect Beth Siegelbaum as one of two District C Common Council members on November 7th.

Well said, Debora! Beth will be an awesome Common Council member for your East Norwalk district and for the city, as in-district representatives also represent the best interests of the entire city most of the time.

I would add that John Kydes, Beth’s running mate on the Row A Democratic ticket, is also an awesome candidate and will represent his district well, as he has proven for the last 2 terms on so many issues.

About this site

NancyOnNorwwalk.com was conceived as the place to go for Norwalk residents to get the real, unvarnished story about what is going on in and around their city. NancyOnNorwalk does not intend to be a print newspaper online; rather, it exists to pull the curtain back and shine a spotlight on how Norwalk is run and what is happening regarding issues that have an impact on taxpayers’ pocketbooks and safety. As an independent site, NancyOnNorwalk’s first and only allegiance is to the reader.

She is married to career journalist Mark Chapman, has a son, Eric (the artist and web designer who built this website), and two cats – a middle-aged lady and a young hottie who are learning how to peacefully co-exist.
