Democrats – please put the August 14th Democratic Primary on your calendar, and remember to vote for Sue Brand for state rep in the 132nd district. She is endorsed by the Democratic Town Committee. Brand has given us 20 years of honesty, intelligence, and commitment, qualities which have made her extremely transformative in Fairfield. Let’s give her our support.
Did you know that Brand protected the teachers and students at while it was under construction? She realized that the original traffic layout at TMS would be dangerous during construction, and worked with town engineer Bill Hurley and others to change it.
When a radon test in one classroom was 6 times the EPA limit, she, along with parents, called for school wide testing. Brand consulted the Environmental Protection Agency to find out the specific rules which had to be followed. In the end, the school’s air quality testing company received additional training, which was great for everyone. Then, to protect all the schools, Brand wrote the PTA protocols for Occupied Renovation & Building Committee Safety & Security Practices, adopted by the Board of Selectmen in 2007.
This one block of time in her years of community service illustrates how her leadership and ability to work with others for a common goal has benefited Fairfield. We need her in Hartford working for us. August 14th, vote for Sue Brand in the Democratic primary for state rep, 132nd.
