To the Editor:
I’m writing to recommend Diane Briggs for the town board of Pound Ridge.
I first met Diane on the path to Scott’s Corners, walking her dog Bella. We became fast friends and over the past 7 years I’ve come to admire her compassion, empathy, sense of humor, intelligence, and dedication to her family as well as animals in need. (I also shouldn’t leave out her baking skills which my entire family appreciates). When she told me she was running for town council I was impressed. What I have seen since has blown me away.
Diane has the passion and the dedication to make a difference. She’s probably knocked on every door in Pound Ridge, and if she hasn’t spoken to you, she’s left her card. She has an open mind and is keen to learn what is important to each member of the community and what she can do to help make Pound Ridge a better place for all of us to live. From my talks with her, I know that she has taken each and every one of these conversations to heart.
I believe that Pound Ridge will benefit tremendously from Diane’s career as a non-profit fundraiser which requires tremendous strategy, tenacity, vision and creativity.
I commend those individuals who have volunteered for our town over the years; their dedication is admirable. But I also celebrate the new talent that is seeking to bring increased energy and vitality to our town board and enrich lives here in Pound Ridge. On November 7, I will be voting for change.
