Here’s the thing about Lisa Brinton. She shows great promise for getting Norwalk out of the slump it has fallen into. It’s a slump characterized by drift and aimlessness at City Hall and constantly rising taxes combined with stagnant or declining property values.
In this her second run for mayor in as many years, Lisa has added Republican Party endorsement on top of her traditional independent base even as she also continues to garner support from disenchanted Democrats. That, folks, is a remarkable feat. Not surprising, though, given her clear focus on the city’s most urgent needs, such as resolving, finally, the POKO fiasco on Wall Street and doing our due diligence on replacement of the Walk Bridge.
Her experience from the world of business and finance, and her characteristic energy, are sorely needed in Norwalk’s government. That change is overdue.
