for Westport rtm, district 3
PUBLISHED IN THE WESTPORT NEWS OCT. 20, 2017
To the Editors:
We will be voting for Lyn Hogan for RTM District 3 and we urge others to do the same. We first met Lyn 12 years ago when our sons played Westport soccer together and we have been friends with Lyn and her husband Steve since.
We know Lyn as a good mom to her son and daughter and as an active Westport volunteer. We only learned later of Lyn’s Washington, D.C. background and work experience that is very relevant to the RTM.
Lyn was the White House associate director for welfare policy in the Clinton Administration after working on Capitol Hill and for a public policy think tank. She also helped start a nonprofit, the Welfare to Work Partnership, that put more than 500,000 welfare recipients to work in 10,000 businesses nationwide. In Connecticut Lyn worked for Yale University’s Center in Child Development & Social Policy.
Lyn is an active volunteer. She currently serves on the RTM after originally being appointed in 2013 to fill Hadley Rose’s open seat. She has served as secretary of the Westport Democratic Town Committee and is currently involved in the PTA, Girl Scouts, and Assumption Church. Lyn attended Columbia University and earned M.P.A. and M.S. degrees.
Please join us in supporting Lyn for the RTM in District 3. She will continue to be a great asset to the RTM and the town of Westport.

To the Editor:
I am writing to urge members of Westport’s District 3 to vote Lyn Hogan for RTM. Lyn and I first met at the YMCA in 2003 when she was just beginning the process of adopting her daughter Anna from China. She approached me asking advice when she realized I too had adopted my daughter from China. We instantly bonded and became fast friends as did our daughters when Lyn and her husband brought Anna home from China in 2006.
I cannot think of a better person to elect to town office than Lyn. Ever since I have known her, Lyn has been committed to her children, their schools and the wonderful town in which we live. Both our daughters attended Kings Highway Elementary School together and are now at Coleytown Middle School and our sons both attend Staples High School and are both part of Staples soccer team.
Lyn brings a wealth of knowledge to the job of RTM. In her professional life, she has worked for the Clinton White House Domestic Policy Council, then-Senator Edward Kennedy’s Education Committee, and for Yale University’s Edward Zigler Center in Child Development & Social Policy. But I think more impressive is her work early on as a drop-out prevention counselor in the New York City public schools and as a family preservation social worker in the Red Hook Housing Projects in Brooklyn. Coupled with her local volunteer work over the years for the PTA, her church, and now the RTM, I can’t think of anyone better for the job.
Please join me in voting for Lyn Hogan for District 3 RTM.
