Vice-Chair, Danbury Democratic Town Committee
Vice-Chair, Danbury Democratic Town Committee
I’m a Democrat because I want to represent all the people of the United States and ensure that they are afforded all the rights and protection as specified by the Constitution of the United States.   I am motivated to see that everyone’s rights, regardless of financial status, race,  life style, or religion are observed and protected by our Constitution.

 There are several changes I’d like to see in Danbury:

– Two vibrant political parties to give the voters of Danbury a real choice at election time.

–  More local tax dollars spent on our ailing public schools.

–  Changes to allow our downtown to become one that we can be proud of.

–  Something done to alleviate the choking traffic everywhere around rush hours…
