FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- The Fairfield Daily Voice accepts signed letters to the editor. Please send letters to fairfield@dailyvoice.com .

To the Editor:  I would like to take this opportunity to clarify and correct recent statements made by State Rep. Tony Hwang. In a campaign press release, Representative Hwang is quoted as saying “Responding to commuters, I helped lead an effort to secure funding to install an overhang on the stairs and platform at the Fairfield Train Station.”  As simply as I can say it -- this is a complete misrepresentation. Rep. Hwang was not involved in this effort.  Town Employees, working with the Fairfield Parking Authority, initiated and developed this canopy project to help our commuters. The funding for the canopy project was transferred from another previously approved project.

The original project was the moving and restoration of the Sturges Gardener’s Cottage. Rep. Hwang was not involved in the canopy project.  Our Town Employees worked very hard to get this project approved and completed for Fairfield  commuters. I am dismayed that Rep. Hwang would make this claim and attempt to take credit for Town of Fairfield employees' work. Thank you for your consideration. Mike Tetreau First Selectman
