To the Editor:

On Monday, Sept. 27, the Democratic Party candidates for Town Council made their case to the voters in virtual debates hosted by the League of Women Voters.

The Democratic Party candidates for Town Council include incumbents Carol A. Blanks, Shari Cantor, Leon Davidoff, Liam Sweeney, Ben Wenograd, and newcomer Adrienne Billings-Smith.

Tonight, voters had the chance to learn about our Row A candidates’ experience and positive vision for West Hartford, which distinguished them from the other candidates. West Hartford Republicans criticize Democratic policies but, predictably, offer no realistic or actionable alternatives – just the empty promise of more services without higher taxes. The four other Republicans now running as A Connecticut Party are employing a similar strategy. They characterize themselves as “a new voice for West Hartford,” while offering all sorts of unpopular and unrealistic money-saving ideas … including one to close Hall or Conard to create a single large high school.

Under Democratic leadership, West Hartford has earned a reputation as one of the most desirable places to live in Connecticut and the nation – a community with great schools and quality services that is culturally vibrant and economically strong. Moreover, as evidenced by the results of Monday’s debates, our diverse slate of Democratic candidates for Town Council are infinitely better equipped to tackle present and future challenges and keep West Hartford moving forward.
