To the Editor:

I’ve known Dru Georgiadis ever since our boys played soccer together at Fairfield Ludlowe High School. And I have been amazed ever since: by her unflagging energy, her full enthusiastic commitment to every undertaking she pursues, her organizational skills (critical for raising four boys, including a set of triplets), and her ability not only to solve problems, but to attract others into making solutions happen.

Since those early soccer days, I’ve come to know and respect Dru the community organizer, Dru the advocate and Dru the RTM member. I trust her to understand the problems affecting our town and our state and the impact of those problems on our citizens, our neighborhoods, our town and our state. I trust her to work with others —and across aisles —to identify the short- and long-term solutions necessary to set our state back on a productive course. And I trust her to blaze new trails for making those solutions equitable for all Connecticut’s towns and citizens.

I am voting for Dru Georgiadis for state representative from the 132nd District. I hope you will, too.
