Letter: Ridgefield needs more affordable housing

To the Editor:

Fellow citizens, I think the town of Ridgefield needs more affordable housing.

I greatly, and many other seniors, enjoy living in Ridgefield. It is truly a wonderful community. The town offers a lot for their seniors through activities and the assistance of awesome senior municipal agent, Karen Guardian.

As a trained Red Cross CNA working for the Ridgefield Visiting Nurses, I see daily on my shift seniors, who are depleting their savings, to pay rent.

At present there are not enough affordable units in town. Many more are needed now and, in the future, for current residents who wish to stay in RIdgefield.
