Letter to the Editor


Voters in Redding, Weston, Westport, Wilton, and parts of Darien, New Canaan, Ridgefield and Stamford all have the opportunity to elect an excellent candidate in the newly drawn 26th State Senate District.

Ceci Maher, a lifelong Fairfield County resident, has raised her family, volunteered, and led nonprofits here for 20 years. Everyday problems for families such as food and housing insecurity, workforce readiness, and financial literacy served as Ceci’s focus during her tenure at Person to Person.

Under Ceci’s capable leadership, local residents in need were provided emergency assistance, college scholarships, mentoring programs, clothing, baby and household basics. Her compassionate leadership and work ethic is needed in Hartford!

Ceci has worked hand in hand with state and local leaders throughout her career. Through her previous work at Sandy Hook Promise, Ceci has advocated for common sense gun safety laws. I know that we can count on her to support reproductive rights as well as investments in infrastructure, mental health services and public education.

Given her proven record of leadership and work on public policy issues, Ceci will undoubtedly be ready on day one to promote legislation that will help all of her constituents. Please join me in voting for her on November 8th.
