Letter: Selectwoman Rabin a tremendous asset at Greenwich Town Hall

 In News

Few public servants in our community have given back their time and energy to the extent that our outstanding Republican Selectwoman Lauren Rabin has.

Lauren has been a proactive teammate of First Selectman Fred Camillo, and taken the lead on several important town-wide initiatives. Lauren previously served on our Board of Education. She has earned the right to a second term.

As selectwoman, Lauren’s contributions are many. A liaison to the Committee on Aging and the Selectman’s Nominations Advisory Committee, Lauren moved the needle in the right direction in significant ways. Lauren’s “Hello Neighbor” phone bank campaign allowed over 100 volunteers to connect with over 3,000 senior citizen households in the precarious early days of the pandemic. On the Nominations Committee, Lauren spearheaded streamlining the town’s antiquated candidate interview processes. This produced over 120 new candidate interviews for boards, commissions and committees.

Lauren was also a significant contributor to the Affordable Housing Task Force and a participant in the development of the Affordable Housing Trust Fund, which will provide Greenwich with a valuable tool going forward.

Lauren is also a strong advocate for bringing our community together. Nowhere was this more evident than in her work as co-chair of Camillo’s “Re-Imagine Greenwich” Committee.

Lauren was at the center of the decision-making process to expand outdoor dining, initiate a parking pilot program for residents and employees and launch the popular “Free Music Fridays” at Greenwich Commons.

Fred has done a great job as first selectman, and his partnership with Lauren has made him a more effective leader. Like Fred, Lauren has a deep rooted understanding of our community and an ability to bring different people together to achieve good results for Greenwich.

I strongly endorse Lauren for a second term as our selectwoman. I hope you do too.
