To the Editors:

I’m a Democrat who frequently splits my vote. (Don’t tell my Democratic friends that.) But I will not from this point on.

What’s happened to the GOP and our country thanks to Donald Trump makes every election for me a plebiscite on what we want this country to be.

That goes for local elections. There are often strong candidates on both sides. But what’s more important now is to send a message that ignoring climate change, racism, misogyny and income inequality will cost you at the polls. In every election. At every level. Even right here in Wilton.
