Editor, New Canaanite,
We all love New Canaan and want to preserve its rich heritage and historical charm. We have worked hard to provide a top-ranked educational system, an abundance of organizations, activities and amenities for people of all ages. Continuing pressures from Hartford have placed us in a precarious situation. Efforts to remedy the financial distress have resulted in increased taxes making it even more difficult for businesses to expand. Companies, jobs and retirees have all left for more tax-friendly states.
