To the Editor:
We have a beautiful lake, great school system, friendly neighborhoods. Many dedicated volunteers, professionals, and officials keep Marlborough moving in a positive direction, correct direction when needed, foster growth and development in a responsible and sustainable manner. There has been concern in recent years about zoning rules and regulations, whether these are adequate, well researched, and more to the point, whether these are implemented fairly, honestly and transparently. Citizens want to be and ought to be heard. The upcoming municipal election offers an opportunity to consider who will play significant roles as regulations, land use, lake protections, and development are brought to the table for consideration, approval, or appeal. The Democratic Town Committee has considered thoughtfully and endorsed exceptionally qualified, diverse individuals for these positions. Zoning Commission: Charles Denler, whose family has been in Marlborough since the 1800’s, built over 100 homes in town along with his father. On the Zoning Board this award winning musician plans to continue building Marlborough as a vibrant, thriving community. Bill Lardi, a municipal building official and contractor for over 40 years, has served on the school renovation committee and is currently on the Zoning Board of Appeals. Zoning Commission, Alternate: Nick Hale, is a 21 year old UConn student pursuing degrees in Political Science and Public Policy. His special interest is in attracting and keeping younger residents. Zoning Board of Appeals: Erica Gorman, an account manager at Microsoft, with a vast technology background, is a skilled, proactive collaborator. Her interest is in making the appeals process respectful and equitable. Zoning Board of Appeals Alternate: Anthony (Tony) Bratz is a mechanical engineering supervisor at Electric Boat, currently serving on the Water Pollution Control Authority. His expertise on infrastructure is invaluable to future development considerations. Vote for the Democratic Zoning TEAM.
