WESTON, Conn. — The Democratic Town Committee is Weston has made its choice of candidates for the fall election for Board of Selectmen.
At its June 14 meeting, the DTC unanimously endorsed Chris Spaulding to run for first selectman and his running mate Brian Gordon to run for selectman.
“Chris and Brian bring exceptional experience and a fresh perspective to town government,” said Fran Goldstein, Chairman of the DTC. “And by working together and across party lines and listening to all members of our community, they know how to find common ground to move Weston forward into the future.”
Spaulding is currently a member of the Board of Selectmen.
“The last two years have been some of the most challenging and rewarding of my life,” he says. “I have met and worked with many remarkable people in town, including town employees and board and commission members as well as countless residents.”
Spaulding has also taken part in big town decisions.
“Among the accomplishments of which I am most proud are the recruiting and hiring of our new town administrator, delivering very responsible budgets during challenging times, and filling in to help manage the town’s daily operations during the absence of the first selectman.”
Spaulding and his wife, Sara, have lived in Weston for 13 ½ years. They have a son in fifth grade and a daughter in seventh grade.
Gordon has been collaborating successfully with Fortune 500 companies for more than two decades.
“I’m running to give back to a town that I truly love,” he says. “Weston is unique on many levels and that is why my family chose to move here from Westport. My style is straightforward: to lead while listening, keep an open mind, communicate effectively and work well with others to accomplish shared goals.”
He moved to Weston from Westport four years ago with his wife, Kristy, to raise their two daughters, one in third grade and one in fifth grade.
