Letter to the Editor


I am writing in support of two candidates for the Planning & Zoning Commission, Sally Korsh (who is an incumbent) and Megan Loucas (who serves as an Alternate on the Zoning Board of Appeals and on the Weston Building Committee).

First, I would like to clarify what may not be apparent to voters when they fill out their ballot. Sally and Megan are the two Democratic Town Committee-endorsed candidates, and their names appear on Row A (or the top row) of the ballot. There is also a petitioning candidate who was not endorsed for reelection by the DTC. By CT law and Town charter, only the top two vote recipients of these three can be seated on P&Z even though the ballot permits you to vote for up to three candidates.

Second, why vote for Sally and Megan? My friend, Sally, is an accomplished attorney with extensive experience in commercial real estate and land use matters. She has been actively involved with P&Z for 8 years, helping to develop, vet and approve the Plan of Conservation & Development and the Village District regulations.

Megan is a licensed architect with 12 years of experience in residential design. She primarily designs sustainable and highly energy efficient homes throughout the tristate area and is experienced working with zoning regulations from a wide array of municipalities. Megan also is a member of the American Institute of Architects and the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association.

Their respective expertise and history of service to Weston make them eminently qualified to serve on P&Z. Let us continue our recent history of strong Democratic leadership of this critical Commission by voting only for Sally and Megan.
