Letter from Selectman Nicholas Williams: Next Board of Selectmen Should Also Be Effective

Dear editor,

I’m writing to thank the many supporters who helped me secure the endorsement of the New Canaan Republican Party for selectman recently. 

I am honored and privileged at the prospect of serving New Canaan for a fourth term as your selectman, and am excited to work with the prospective two new members of our board, Kevin Moynihan and Kit Devereaux.  Their fresh ideas are welcomed, and working together, I believe that our board will continue to have a positive impact on our community in the years to come. Discourse and debate are vital to democracy, and I was so glad to hear from many of my fellow New Canaanites during the election cycle.  Your views are critical to identifying and understanding the issues that impact our town, and I thank you for your input. I have enjoyed working with Rob Mallozzi and Beth Jones immensely during the last six years, and I’m proud to call them both my friends as well as my colleagues. I will miss the quiet strength, dignity and wisdom of Selectman Jones.  While we may not have agreed on all matters coming before the Board, my respect for her as a public servant and as a person is boundless.

Op-Ed: Selectman Nick Williams on ‘Why I Want to Continue to Serve New Canaan’

I believe our community has enjoyed tremendous success in recent years. This year we were ranked as the #1 town in Connecticut to raise a family by the highly regarded Niche.com. Our schools are well-funded and have an outstanding administration and staff, and its unquestioned excellence benefits all of our citizens. Our emergency services are second to none. Our infrastructure is improving every year. Our parks are magnificent, and our downtown village is the envy of Connecticut.
