Lisa Brinton impresses me. While the mayor’s campaign keeps trying to characterize her poorly, using words that would get one dismissed in the corporate world, Lisa IS the woman for the job! Lisa has the experience we require in Norwalk-urgently.
What do I mean by experience? How about the business acumen developed by working for AT&T/Bell Labs/Lucent in all those incarnations and in 3 different countries? Her leadership and managerial skills are manifested throughout her rising career. With that, she had the stamina and perseverance to raise two young boys across those travels, also while battling breast cancer multiple times. The woman has chutzpah by the bucket load. She also has the formal education with a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications and a Masters in Public Policy and Administration, with an executive MBA in the middle.
Lisa has been active in Norwalk for many years. She worked on the PTO when her kids were younger; and whenever she saw a hole, she filled it. Norwalk Education Policy was lagging, so she started R.Ed Apples to push for changes. Our schools were the better for it, and many now rank at the top of the state, due to the efforts of many, of course, but Lisa was there at the beginning.
Lisa moderated debates for the League of Women Voters and drove that organization to new heights, and it lit a spark within her…she was no longer willing to sit idly by and watch the City be mismanaged. She has ideas and a platform and is running to implement them, not for her own good or the start of some political career, but on behalf of us ALL. Norwalk must have reform to foster its potential,,and she is the one to get the job done. I am with her all the way. I’m voting proudly for Lisa! I hope you join me.
