|Weston’s Response to State Fiscal Crisis
Date Posted: 2-27-17
By Nina Daniel, First Selectman
This First Selectman's report is offered as an update regarding our possible response to the threat of the State’s fiscal crisis and its impact on Weston.
The State's fiscal crisis and the Governor's proposed budget FY 2017-18 already are having a devastating effect on our community. Not only does the poorly performing State economy depress our housing values, the "solutions" under consideration in the Legislature to correct problems of poor job growth, out migration, declining revenue to State's coffers, and other negative economic indicators serve only to exacerbate the problems and propel us on a downward spiral toward State bankruptcy. Many people think we are already there. To read the full article, click here

Date Posted: 1-01-16
As we enter a New Year and turn the page on the old, we celebrate Weston as an exceptional community of neighbors, volunteers, families and professionals from many walks of life including business, finance and the arts.
Among many other attributes that afford a quality lifestyle to residents of all ages, Weston offers: Top ranked schools on a unified campus, committed to educational innovation and personalized attention to all students; The natural rural beauty of its land and open space; An unspoiled environment, clean water and pristine air; The ability of residents to enjoy an active social, intellectual and cultural life through participation in a wide array of community-led civic organizations; Proximity to New York City (47 miles to the south) with New Haven, Hartford, and Boston to the north; Numerous outdoor recreational amenities in town, with the beaches of Long Island Sound some 6 miles to the east.
As First Selectman of Weston, I value our citizenry first and foremost. With multigenerational family roots deep in the community, I know we are a "people" and not just a place or conglomeration of homes, buildings and facilites.
Going forward, I will bring this understanding to face the challenge of meeting the needs of all residents, parents, children, and grandparents alike. I will embrace a future for Weston that balances change with our historical roots and builds on four centuries of careful stewardship of our assests and people.

|A Message from our New First Selectman, Nina Daniel:
Date Posted: 11-12-15
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.
