FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- The Fairfield Daily Voice accepts signed letters to the editor. Send letters to email@example.com .
With a humble and grateful heart, I thank not only those who supported me in the primary election, but all who participated in some way in this week's democratic process.
It has been an honor to serve our community as a Representative Town Meeting member and now on the Board of Selectmen. I am grateful for the opportunity to continue in this journey towards serving in Hartford as your next state representative. I congratulate my opponent, Matt Waggner, for his determination, hard work and commitment to the democratic process. I know that he will continue to be an advocate for justice. I believe in this community and love our town, and look forward to working together to achieve real solutions for Fairfield, the state and country. Most of all, I look forward to continuing the conversation with Fairfielders. With my deepest thanks, Cristin McCarthy Vahey
