I am writing as a citizen and not as a member of any board. But as an elected board member, my responsibilities have given me ample opportunities to observe this year's candidates on a number of different topics.

I would like to recognize and thank both Gail Lavielle and Toni Boucher for their tireless dedication to Wilton, and for their unwavering focus on elevating and addressing important issues in Hartford.

I have seen Gail and Toni work as a well-orchestrated team to address a wide variety of issues that affect our schools, our town, and our taxes. They have fought to address unfunded education mandates that drive up our taxes, fought to keep Super 7 from being resurrected, and fought to bring transparency to the dealings in Harford. They have served Wilton well and I am thankful that they are committed to continuing their efforts
