Letter: Bob Naughton for Board of Education

Please join me and vote for Bob Naughton for Board of Education at the Republican Caucus on Tuesday, July 16th. 

Bob’s extensive private sector experience in the education field combined with his knowledge of our community make him the ideal candidate. Bob is currently the Chief Technology Officer of an educational assessment company in NYC and he has been in the education industry for close to a decade. Additionally, Bob and has worked in the technology field for almost 30 years. Bob would bring a unique perspective to the Board of Education as he understands both the business of education and technology’s role in today’s schools. Given his education and technology background, Bob will be able to help identify ways to increase the efficiency of our school system without impacting the high level of education we currently enjoy. Bob believes that the Board’s decision-making process should be transparent to keep community members fully informed.

Letter: ‘Thank You’ from the Exchange Club

We want to thank the New Canaan community and residents from nearby towns for buying Christmas trees & wreaths from our 50th annual fundraiser in Kiwanis Park. We were also pleased to see many adults and children attending our annual Lou Moreno Tree Lighting ceremony on December 2. The Exchange Club of New Canaan had a record year with 1,300 Christmas trees, 2,000 wreaths, plus roping and other seasonal merchandise sold. We netted nearly $100,000, which we’ll distribute to local non-profit and community organizations later this year. We could not have been successful without the help from many organizations including the Service League of Boys (SLOBs), the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, Pivot Ministries, the Shepherds, the NC Recreation Department, the Chamber of Commerce, Old Faithful, First Selectman (and Exchange Club member) Kevin Moynihan, and Wisdom, our watchdog.
