Letter: Give Weston Open, Honest Government

WESTON, Conn. – The following letter to the editor was written by Weston Selectman Dan Gilbert.

I’m running for first selectman because, like you, I love our town. We share a common vision for Weston. We want a great school system and ethical and effective town government. A government that’s fiscally responsible to assure we can all afford to live here. Government that’s open and honest, where each of us is heard with respect. Leadership that’s focused on your needs. We want to help our neighbors in need and our seniors. We want to protect Weston’s autonomy.

Sharon and I moved here over 25 years ago. We came for Weston’s great school system. I’m currently a selectman. I’ve served on our town’s Planning and Zoning Commission. I split wood as a Kiwanian to support the WarmUp Fund, collect food for our food pantry, work on Americare’s projects in town and serve lunch to our seniors every month at Norfield church hall.

I’d appreciate the opportunity to assure that our town realizes its full potential. I can best do that by being your first selectman. While these are challenging times, our vision for Weston can be realized. I’ll begin by bringing you into the planning process, by respecting everyone who attends our selectmen’s meetings and by working to support a strong sense of community and volunteerism in our town.

I give you my word, I’ll always tell you the truth. You’ll clearly know where I stand on every issue and I’ll never, and I mean never, put politics before you and your needs.
