Dathan did the right thing, so should Wilms

By now most Norwalkers will be aware that the City is facing an uptick in Coronavirus cases.  We are basically in “code red” mode.

Phone messages from the Mayor and constant information from Lucy Dathan’s (D-142) campaign have kept Norwalk residents up to date with information they need to keep themselves and others as safe as possible.

Face to face contact with constituents is the surest way to persuade people that you deserve their vote. It is especially important to make direct contact with constituents in the last few days before an election.

However, because Lucy’s number one concern is the health and safety of her volunteers and constituents, she has suspended her in-person campaign and is focusing on virtual events and telephone calls.

I commend her for this thoughtful and socially responsible action.

As we all know, the Coronavirus does not distinguish between any political party and I trust that her opponent will take the same responsible measure to ensure that everyone remains safe.

Does Mx. Dothan not believe in science? A virus can be easily prevented from spreading by wearing a surgical type mask and maintaining a distance of approximately 6 feet in normal circumstances. Unsure why this political activist feels the need to spread hysteria.

Sounds like you’re trying for voter suppression Mr. Kimmich.

Norwalkers can get their hair cut, get mani-pedis, go grocery shopping, go to the SONO Mall, take a plane/train/bus/Uber, and they can do all that carefully, with social distancing and masks, no handshakes.

This letter is all about politics, not science.

Stop the fear mongering. Good for Wilms for getting out and not living in his basement. Knocking on doors and speaking with people on their doorstep, while socially distancing and wearing a mask will not spread the virus. If someone doesn’t want to answer the door they don’t have to. The Left loves to shame people that don’t agree with them.

Fred is doing what a good elected official does – listening to the people. And if that takes time, effort and energy by going door-to-door then so be it.

Hey, 6 feet and a mask is what the science says. Is Ms. Dathane “quitting” on doing the hard work required of a dedicated elected official?

Sounds like Lucy is making excuses for losing already. Her presence in the West and East Rocks corridors has been pretty much non-existent. Will anti-Trump coattails, the only thing that elected her last time around, be enough?
