WILTON, Conn. -- The Wilton Daily Voice accepts signed letters to the editor. Please send letters to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To the editor:
State Rep. Gail Lavielle truly represents her constituents in Hartford. Since she took office she has demonstrated that she doesn’t get mired down in government bureaucracy, rather, she looks for the solution. She exemplifies what we expect in a leader in Hartford fighting to help cities and towns maintain control over key issues.
As an example, last year the state legislature enacted a law that requires public schools to follow a regional calendar, meaning that Wilton will no longer be allowed to set its own dates, vacation weeks, or professional development days. This action forces us to adopt a calendar drawn up by out-of-town bureaucrats.
Gail was among the most vocal critics of this idea, and was successful in having its implementation delayed for two years – hopefully a better option, or even outright repeal will be possible.
I am grateful for Rep. Lavielle’s commitment to local rights! Vote for HER!
