I am writing in support of Rich Townsend for Town Council. I have had the pleasure to know Rich for six years as a responsible community supporter, successful businessman, a passionate, intelligent, and humble leader. Throughout his 30 years in New Canaan, Rich has earned the respect and support of many town constituents. He has a common-sense approach that is supported by research and facts. Rich is committed to protecting our property values, and is focused on what matters.
