Letter: New Canaan DTC Chair Thanks Dignitaries, Attendees at Annual Barbecue



On behalf of the New Canaan Democratic Town Committee, I extend my thanks to all who attended the DTC Annual Barbecue at Kiwanis Park on Sunday.  We were especially honored to have our two US Senators Richard Blumenthal and Christopher Murphy and US Congressman Jim Himes with us and we are grateful for their inspirational remarks and their time that they spent one-on-one with the enthusiastic crowd.

In addition, we welcomed CT Secretary of State Denise Merrill, Attorney General George Jepsen, General Assembly Representative William Tong and Bridgeport Mayor Joseph Ganim.

Throughout the event, the speakers offered their strong support for all of our local candidates who are running for elected office. Six of our candidates—Kit Devereaux for First Selectwoman, Rob Fryer for Town Treasurer, Sheri West for Board of Education, Liz Gores Donovan, Sven Englund and Colm Dobbyn for Town Council each spoke about their vision and commitment to New Canaan and were energized by the turnout and encouragement they each received from the dignitaries and the crowd in attendance.

Looking ahead, our Democratic candidates recognize that they represent all constituents in New Canaan—adults and children regardless of party affiliation. Accordingly, they each look forward to introducing themselves and hearing from all New Canaanites over the next weeks leading up to the municipal election on November 7th.

    • Jim arrived during the last part of the event. He had another event, and then encountered traffic. He was great, as always.
