Nancy & Andy Chapin: A Republican and an Unaffiliated, Life Long Residents will Vote for Moss

Letter to the editor submitted by Nancy Pierce Chapin and Andy Chapin, Cos Cob

On Tuesday, January 21st there is a special election for state representative in the 151st district. We have a lot at stake. In this abbreviated election cycle without a public debate, we are challenged to understand the differences in the two candidates.

We will be voting for Cheryl Trepp Moss for two key reasons.  First, her involvement in the community. Cheryl Moss was unanimously elected RTM District 8 Chair and has a long history of community service and has been active in all aspects of our town. Cheryl Moss is the candidate Greenwich knows and who knows Greenwich best.

Second, Cheryl Moss has a track record of working with people with different points of view and builds consensus even when faced with divisive issues. In order to have an effective government we will need a representative who will be able to work collaboratively with others to represent Greenwich on key policy decisions and to bring about effective change. She has demonstrated bi-partisan leadership and this talent is recognized by the committees and residents she serves.

Cheryl Trepp Moss understands the challenges we face and is up to the task of addressing them. Residents and businesses are leaving CT for low tax states. Cheryl Moss’s vision for new businesses across our state will grow our tax base resulting in lower taxes for all, especially Fairfield County.

Cheryl Moss recognizes we need to grow our economy through improved infrastructure, business friendly regulation and urban centers that will attract and retain young talent. And her experience as an environmental consultant will prove invaluable as CT looks to capitalize on the potential for growth in the “green economy”.

This comprehensive plan for growth is a vision Republicans, Democrats and the unaffiliated voters can support.

Cheryl Trepp Moss is the right choice for the 151st on January 21st .
