I write in response to Jason A. Buchsbaum’s, newly elected Vice Chair of the Southbury Republican Town Committee, recent letter. I applaud and echo his sentiments that urge all voters in Southbury to become active in our local political process regardless of affiliation. I encourage and extend an invitation to all residents of Southbury to attend meetings held by both the Southbury Republican Town Committee and the Southbury Democratic Town Committee. Your involvement is crucial to the success of the Town of Southbury.
In addition, Mr. Buchsbaum states that the SRTC is undergoing what seem to be refreshing changes in the upcoming months in order to ensure that the SRTC restores the voice of Southbury Republicans. I am hopeful that these changes will result in more communication and collaboration between the Democrats and Republicans in Southbury.
However, I am not without some reservations. The new SRTC still has some old habits to break when it comes to its leadership and membership. Therefore, I ask that Southbury residents take Mr. Buchsbaum and me seriously when we ask you to get involved. It is vital that you let your voice, be it Republican or Democrat, be heard. Please email me or attend our next meeting on May 21, 2012.
Democratic Town Committee Chairwoman
