Baker: Moss Represents Long Term Service in Greenwich

Letter to the editor from Sue H Baker, Greenwich

I am writing in support of Cheryl Moss the candidates for Greenwich District 151, State Representative.

I have known Cheryl most of her life, first as a pleasant and polite and popular child, later at Greenwich High School as a good student and athlete.

As a high school student, Cheryl was responsible and committed and successful in her academics and as a varsity athlete.

As a young adult raising a family in Greenwich, she has continued to demonstrate all those attributes I remember over the years. She has been active in the community and in her children’s schools.

She is currently a member of the RTM and supports town committees and not-for-profit organizations and continues to work in the schools, so she has much knowledge of and experience with the Town of Greenwich.

I do not know Mr. Aurora.  I only know of him through his political race for the US House of Representatives because I attended the Greenwich League of Women Voters debate with Mr. Aurora and the Honorable Jim Himes.

I rely on those debates (and the “Voters’ Guide” published by the Greenwich League of Women Voters) to learn about candidates; therefore, I was alarmed to learn that he refused to participate in one for this election.

I was also alarmed to think that he was challenging the integrity and long history of nonpartisanship of the League of Women Voters and their choice of a revered and capable Moderator for that debate.

For those reasons and for the experience and reputation of Cheryl Moss, I believe she is the better candidate to represent the Town of Greenwich in Hartford.
