Joyce Rossitter

Democratic Candidate for the Middletown Planning and Zoning Commission

Participating in the planning of a future Middletown as a member of the Planning and Zoning Commission is a responsibility that as a long time resident I feel qualified to do.

As a former newspaper correspondent, I reported on numerous meetings of planning and zoning commissions learning the concepts and vocabulary as well as the difficulties involved.

My involvement in Middletown includes teaching English as a Second Language for many years in the Middletown Adult Education program; being active in Wesleyan Hills, a planned community of 575 homes (currently president of its association); participating in a study conducted by the Greater Middletown League of Women Voters on mass transit which resulted in my being named to the first Middletown Transit District; and a League study of nuclear waste which led to my serving on the Connecticut Yankee Community Decommissioning Advisory Committee.
