About the op-eds

The Fairfield Citizen invited the three candidates for first selectman to submit op-ed pieces making their final appeals directly to voters. All three accepted.

They were given up to but not more than 850 words to use as they saw fit. How much of that space to use was entirely up to each candidate.

The pieces are as they were submitted, with only minor editing for consistency of style on things such as capitalization and abbreviations. Headlines and subheads in the text were written by the editors.
