Lyme P&Z needs House and Gigliotti

Lyme voters will have the opportunity to vote for an outstanding candidate for one of two open seats on the Planning and Zoning Commission. Carol House, a Democrat, is well-qualified and will be a tremendous asset to our town. She worked for 33 years in the U.S. Department of Agriculture, communicating with small farm associations and visiting many rural towns to better understand how to help sustain and develop farming. 

Lyme’s Plan of Conservation and Development has prescribed preserving and promoting agriculture. Carol’s extensive knowledge will be extremely valuable in advancing that directive. Currently the Planning and Zoning Commission is drafting agricultural regulations. Her expertise will guide us in preserving our agricultural heritage and meeting the challenges farming faces today. 

Carol has also distinguished herself as a dedicated community volunteer in Lyme. She is a member of the Lyme Democratic Town Committee, the Affordable Housing Commission, program officer of the Lyme Garden Club and a member of the Board of Directors of Camp Claire. 

For the second open seat, Republican Bernard Gigliotti is running unopposed. I will enthusiastically cast my two votes for Bernie and for Carol House, who will be invaluable additions to the Planning and Zoning Commission.
