New Canaan resident Jennifer Richardson is seeking the endorsement of the Republican Party for re-election to the Board of Education. We put some questions to the incumbent about her candidacy. Our exchange follows. New Canaanite: Tell us about yourself—how long have you lived in New Canaan, what have you been involved with here in town and what led you to your decision to seek re-election? Jennifer Richardson: My name is Jennifer Richardson and I am running for re-election onto the Board of Education. I moved to New Canaan in 1983 and am a graduate of New Canaan High School.
