Opinion: My economic plan is essential for Norwalk

State Rep. Bruce Morris (D-140) speaks to supporters in October, as part of his bid to be Norwalk mayor. His platform including a switch to public/private partnerships to help fund city needs.

NancyOnNorwalk reached out to State Rep. Bruce Morris, who fell short Tuesday in his bid to become Norwalk’s next mayor, for a reaction to the election. This is his response. 

I am with my father who was placed in hospice care on yesterday. He has hours or no more than a day or two left. My remaining time with him is my priority right now, as I could not be with him often in these last weeks of the campaign. As you know, he is my political and public service inspiration.

On my FB Page, I have extended my assistance to  Mayor Rilling, helping him to be successful for Norwalk.   I firmly believe my economic plan is essential for Norwalk and similar urban communities. Further, it will relieve the unsustainable state burden to support struggling cities. If he wishes, I will be only glad to work with Mayor Rilling on this and other items discussed during the campaign. I will be interested in his vision for the city and how that  is derived from or becomes a shared vision by all Norwalk residents for the next 10 years and how I may support the fulfillment of said vision. We are at a critical point in time determining the future of our great city. I will do all that I can to encourage all citizens become engaged in celebrating the good and refining whatever needs fixing in our city.

Considering the depth of intellectual capital in Norwalk, with thoughtful planning, a comprehensive economic development plan, monitored measurable goals with all hands on deck, Norwalk can become the model of an economically self sustainable city for others to follow. Again, I look forward to supporting Mayor Rilling  – for the good of our city, as he deems appropriate.

Deepest sympathy to the Morris family in this time of sadness about the health of the elder Mr. Morris.
Bruce Morris’s response to the election results is a fine example of statesmanship and constructive governance.
