Wilton Letter: Lavielle Fights For Danbury Branch Commuters

WILTON, Conn. -- The Wilton Daily Voice accepts signed letters to the editor. Please send letters to

To the editor:

As a commuter who is at the mercy of Metro-North to get to and from work every day, I want to personally thank Rep. Gail Lavielle for the work she did to restore thru-service on the early morning Danbury Branch train.

Danbury Branch trains are diesel, and were a godsend to Norwalk residents during Metro-North’s frequent winter main-line power outages. Gail's petition to Metro-North, her personal meetings with railroad executives, and the unrelenting pressure she put on management did the trick, and thru-service was restored.

Metro-North is a critical part of our state’s transportation network, and we need to be expanding service, not cutting back. Gail’s constituent service is really exceptional, and I will be pleased to support Rep. Lavielle next month.
