    Keep Mickle on Old Lyme ZBA

    Re-elect Stephanie Mickle to the Old Lyme Zoning Board of Appeals. I am a 39-year resident who wants to give back to our wonderful town. As an experienced ZBA member for the past six years, I understand the importance of balancing the need to provide relief to property owners who demonstrate a legal hardship with the need to protect the greater good of the community.

    I have contributed to new resources such as the “Residential Variance Application Guide” and updated ZBA procedures. I continue to educate myself about CT land use law and procedures. As a retired high school science teacher and previous social services worker, I bring competence, organizational skills, inquisitiveness and a sense of fairness to my role on the ZBA.

    My other volunteer activities include serving on the Old Lyme Land Trust as a land steward and an education committee member. Previously I served on Lyme-Old Lyme High School’s safe graduation committee, and helped as a rape crisis and battered women’s counselor, church school teacher and East Lyme High School's planetarium director.

    I respectfully ask for your vote on Nov. 7.

    Stephanie Mickle

    Old Lyme
