Your Voice: Nurture Farmington’s next generation of leaders

To the editor:

A community’s most valuable asset lies in carrying on our work and our values through the next generation: the generation that will carry Farmington into the future.

It is to our credit that we nurture the genuine interest and aspirations of our future leaders when the time arises. This election cycle, that opportunity has shown itself clearly in Maria Taylor. I have known Maria for many years through our shared interest in historical research. She is invested in the dynamics of a community of people working together and has an appreciation of our distinctive past and of what makes our city unique.

To see her stepping up her service to our community gives me hope for the future of our city. I encourage you to cast your vote for her on Nov. 7.
