We write this letter to clarify remarks made at the joint Town Council and Board of Finance Meeting on February 26 during which the public commented on the proposed capital expenditure for the new New Canaan Library. Governors on the Board at the New Canaan Museum & Historical Society spoke out against the proposed demolition of the existing library. As part of these remarks, a letter from the former executive director of our Society was read. These presentations resulted in confusion.
As is the case with many individuals in New Canaan, we all are engaged in many ways in what goes on in this town. We work and volunteer in different capacities—on town commissions or councils, on nonprofit boards, on advocacy groups.
