To the Editor:

Impacting Climate Change -- for our children, for the world's most vulnerable -- Begins with Strong Local Leadership

I am writing to endorse Ceci Maher for election to the State Senate in the 26 th district of
Ridgefield.

As a mother, I am very concerned about the very real effects of climate change, and how those
effects will impact my children and their children. I am saddened to think of how their lives
might change. As a professional for an organization working with refugees from various parts
of the world, I see very directly how the effects of climate change are driving more and more
people from their homelands, as they see local water supplies and food production
disappearing.

Ceci Maher also believes that climate change is a real risk to the world, and will work to develop
effective policy responses that can have a positive impact from the state level. She has been
endorsed by the Sierra Club and by the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters. If you also
care about combating climate change, please join me in supporting Ceci Maher as State
Senator from Ridgefield.
