As I take office as your new First Selectman, I am humbled by the privilege the electorate has afforded me to lead the people of Weston, my hometown of fifty years.
I congratulate all the candidates who ran for office on their willingness to be public servants. I especially applaud the people of Weston who voted in record numbers (45.86% of the electorate) in a municipal election.
I know that the mantle of leadership is heavy. I believe the hand of leadership should be light but firm. I pledge to serve all residents with fairness across generational, political and other divides. In that spirit, I ask that you join me in a call for unity and engagement in the process of forging a bright future for our lovely town.
