Kit Devereaux, a resident of New Canaan for 28 years who has served since 2017 on the Board of Selectmen, is moving to Maryland next month. The Democrat is moving to Annapolis to be near her daughter, grandson and brother as well as her husband Robert Geitz’s best friend, she said. Asked how she felt about leaving her longtime home, Devereaux said she was “filled with nostalgia and sadness.”
“New Canaan has been such an important place to me,” she told NewCanaanite.com. “It’s the place I’ve lived longest in my lifetime. I have so many friends here and I’ve been so involved in the community that the concept of leaving it is very sad.”
Devereaux said she’s moving mid-August.
Under Chapter Three of the Town Charter, Devereaux is to notify her fellow selectman and the Town Council chair of her resignation by certified mail, and those three shall meet within 15 days to vote in a replacement to fill her term.
