WHS women grads: Westport town government needs you

To the editor:

Sincere congratulations to the bright young women who figured prominently in Westport High School’s 2014 graduation ceremonies.

Valedictorian, co-salutatorians, class president, vice-president. All  women. All leaders. All smart and motivated.

As I read about these accomplished young women, I wondered if they would be welcomed into leadership positions within future Westport  town governance — historically, currently, and overwhelmingly dominated by men. I daydreamed longingly of a Board of SelectWOMEN.

You go girls! Westport needs you.
