As we kick off Election 2019 I couldn’t be more pleased to support Kevin Moynihan for First Selectman and Nick Williams for Selectman. They are strong, dedicated and forward-thinking leaders who have served New Canaan with extraordinary focus on the issues facing our community.
This team brings numerous accomplishments, with overarching concerns for preservation of our historic past, and ensuring a bright, sustainable future. Waveny Park field/trails/gardens are being rejuvenated through the public-private partnership with the Waveny Park Conservancy; Waveny house is receiving needed repairs and soon will be ADA accessible for people of all abilities. Solar energy has been brought to several town-owned buildings and schools; natural gas has arrived in Town; both projects have brought significant savings to our budgets. And impressively, in collaboration with town staff and others, and clearly sensitive to the impact of the reval, the general economic climate and maintaining our top notch schools, the 2019-20 budget came in at an impressive -.43%.
Historically, municipal leadership in New Canaan reflects more about candidate’s skills than Party. Both Kevin and Nick bring extensive involvement in the community enabling them to be sensitive to the needs and interests of our citizens. Most important, they bring applicable operational/financial/legal experiences essential to understanding the challenges of managing New Canaan’s complex $150m government.
Let’s re-elect Kevin Moynihan First Selectman and Nick Williams Selectman so all of us will continue to enjoy this level of critical thinking, responsible decisions, collaborative leadership and commitment to the welfare of our town.
