Fiorello took some hard stances

Stamford Advocate - - OPINION -

To the editor,

I met Kim­berly Fiorello last year through my work with CT Women United and the Arch Street Teen Cen­ter Board. Kim­berly is smart and fo­cused, a won­der­ful mother to four, and “able to to leap tall build­ings in a sin­gle bound!” Yes, in my book she is a lit­tle like su­per­man (or woman). De­spite ob­sta­cles, she knows how to get things done. She cares deeply for this com­mu­nity and for our coun­try and her story is quite com­pelling. I have so much for re­spect for the way she stands up for what she be­lieves in and she is not afraid to work hard.

She has been very vo­cal about her sup­port for our lo­cal po­lice force. I am thank­ful, be­cause I agree with her. Kim­berly’s hard work on the Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Town Meet­ing in­spired oth­ers to get in­volved. Kim­berly doesn’t set­tle for sta­tus quo.

She has gained the re­spect of mem­bers of both the Repub­li­can and Demo­cratic party and re­cently was en­dorsed by Joseph Duffy, a Demo­crat and cur­rent ad­viser to Gov. Ned La­mont. She fully sup­ported schools re­open­ing, un­like some of our elected of­fi­cials in Hart­ford and took a hard stance with Ever­source af­ter their in­ef­fec­tive lead­er­ship this past sum­mer that left many of us with­out power for more than a week.

Kim­berly has my full sup­port and I know she will rep­re­sent our com­mu­nity and Stam­ford proudly when she is elected in Novem­ber. Icy Frantz River­side
