Letter: Two BOE Members Endorse Brendan Hayes and Julie Reeves



We are writing in support of both Brendan Hayes and Julie Reeves for re-election to the Board of Education.

Brendan Hayes works hard to make sure New Canaan Public Schools efficiently educate each child to the fullest. He leverages his financial expertise to ensure that the Board of Education budgets are transparent, clear and deliver the maximum return on our Town’s investment. He serves on the BOE Resource Committee and updated the BOE policy that charges non-BOE entities for using school property. In recognition of his leadership, Brendan was elected Chair of the BOE this year, where he ably stewarded the budget through the town approval process and built strong relationships with town officials.

Striving for the highest quality public education for New Canaan’s students comes naturally to Brendan Hayes. Brendan’s parents were teachers and then administrators. Brendan and Ainsley Hayes have lived in New Canaan for 11 years and their 3 children attend New Canaan’s schools. We are fortunate Brendan wants to run for re-election.

Julie Reeves also deserves your vote for BOE. Her commitment to excellence in education, intelligence and dedication to the students in New Canaan have been apparent since her first BOE meeting. She was appointed in May 2019 and immediately made a positive impact on the Board.

Penny Rashin & Sheri West
