Greenwich Delegation Condemn Toxic, Divisive Rhetoric

Letter to the editor submitted from the Greenwich Delegation, Jan 16, 2018

“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.” — Martin Luther King

Dr. King’s message is never more applicable than today.

Recently the President has been accused of comments that were beyond inappropriate and offensive.

Our delegation will never support this kind of toxic and divisive rhetoric from any individual or organization, whether it comes from Washington or from our beloved town.

Selective hatred whether on the local, state or federal level is something that we will not tolerate, nor should the residents of the town of Greenwich.

As we enter into this year’s legislative session, we do so with the intent to follow another one of Dr. King’s messages and “Carve a tunnel of hope through the dark mountain of disappointment.”

As we have proven through bipartisan efforts in both legislation and the crafting of budgets, we are confident that we can and will once again reignite that light at the end of the tunnel for all of Connecticut.
