Bullying. Domestic violence. Substance abuse. It’s striking that so many of the problems that hurt communities here in Connecticut and across the nation could be avoided if people just talked to each other and worked together sooner.
Clinton is not immune from this challenge. How we deal with stress; how we feel about ourselves; how we treat each other; and, how we resolve our differences – these are the key issues in creating a safe and positive quality of life here.
That’s why I am a member of Partners in Community (PiC), and why I’d like you to consider joining. PiC is made up of young people and adults from Clinton -- parents, educators, business and civic leaders – who want to work together to help inspire positive attitudes and empower healthy choices in our community. We want to give people, young and old, ways to be heard, and strategies to resolve issues without feeling they have resorting to drugs, hate or violence.
If you're a member of this community, you have the opportunity to be a partner with the community. Your voice and your support are welcome, wanted and needed to make Clinton a safer and better place to live, work and play. Join me in being a partner in community today.
