In his Oct. 23 letter, "Democrats counting on NL's unaffiliated voters," a Democratic Town Committee member addresses the unaffiliated voters of New London. He suggests that if they vote a straight Democratic ticket all will be right with our little corner of the world. I totally disagree.
This election season there are many excellent candidates running for both City Council and the Board of Education. Some of these are Democrats, some Republicans, some are from the Green party and some are unaffiliated. Many forums have been provided by various groups so that voters can meet the candidates and determine those who will best represent the citizens of New London in moving our city forward.
To suggest that only one party is the best is an insult to the integrity of the informed voter. I am certain that voters in our city have evolved beyond voting for only one party. I am certain that, like me, they are choosing the best candidates from the excellent group running for office.
