WESTPORT, Conn. -- The Westport Daily Voice accepts signed letters to the editor. Send letters to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To The Editor:
Who is Melissa Kane? She’s a Democrat with honorable ideals and a bipartisan approach to politics. She has been actively involved in building Westport’s community since moving here in 2002. She’s also the owner of a small floral design business, which I worked at for several years. She plans her work with great detail and provides her clients with the best product possible. Melissa knows that small businesses are part of what make Westport special and works to support them.
Melissa has a love of Westport, which grew out of spending summers here as a child and shows in her desire to preserve its character, incorporating improvements in a way that is harmonious and built on community consensus. Among other notable community involvements, she’s been a Trustee of the Westport Public Library, a position she withdrew from when elected to Westport’s RTM in 2011. On the RTM she's an active participant on the Public Protection, Public Works, Library Museum & Arts, Special Ethics and Rules committees.
Melissa is a passionate environmentalist and strong voice for environmental issues in Westport. As Vice-Chair of Green Village Initiative she has organized many educational events and initiatives in Westport, and worked to build social, economic and environmental change throughout Fairfield county and beyond.
A true advocate for Westport’s children, business owners, seniors and sustainable future, I believe Melissa makes a well-rounded and logical partner to Helen Garten, who is certainly the best choice for First Selectman.
