Lakeville Journal: She listens: Vote for Horn

Letter to the Editor:

I met Maria Horn at a “Meet the Candidate” event for state representative at a gathering at my neighbors’ home recently. I experienced her as an informed, articulate woman who has the ability to calmly look at issues from different points of view.  

The lack of stridency in her message was refreshing in these times of finger-pointing and personal insults. Ms. Horn answered questions about issues, including Sharon Hospital, affordable housing, improved technology to attract businesses and the concerns of our neighbors in North Canaan and Torrington. 

Her approach to these problems was deep listening and conversation to find truths. It is not “they are wrong and I can fix it”, but finding ways to meet, listen and problem-solve.

When she knocks on your door, welcome her presence and willingness to listen to your concerns.
