Letter: Marconi to speak at League event Jan. 8

To the Editor:

On January 8th, First Selectman Rudy Marconi will be the guest speaker at the Ridgefield League of Women Voters’ “Get To Know Your Town Meeting” and Alice Paul Day Celebration. Mr. Marconi will be giving a “State of the Town” presentation.

Ridgefielder Alice Paul was one of the most influential women in America leading the successful fight for women’s right to vote and championing equal rights for women through most of the 20th century. In 2011, Mr. Marconi declared Alice Paul Day in honor of her accomplishments and 30 years of residence in Ridgefield.

So mark your calendars for Tuesday, Jan. 8, at 10:30 a.m. at Town Hall’s lower level conference room and join the League  for coffee and conversation. It’s a great opportunity to relax on a cold winter morning with friends and learn more about Alice and what is happening in Ridgefield.  The event is free and open to the public.

The League is proud to sponsor this event and many more in 2019 that educate, inform (and  entertain!) our fellow community members about issues important to them and the League. The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan political organization of women and men that encourages active participation in government and voting.

Marilyn P. Carroll,

President, Ridgefield League of Women Voters
