November 3, 2011 To the Editor;
I am writing in support of the candidacy of Van Young for Constable. Van is a life-long resident of New Canaan, a graduate of New Canaan High School, and has a distinguished career in executive search with a focus on boards of directors and CEOs.
I have known Van for the 24 years that I lived in town. During that time, I had the privilege of serving the community and getting to know a wide range of its leaders through my membership on the Republican Town Committee, as Chairman of the Elementary Schools Building Committee, and as an active member of the teams that helped elect Judy Neville to the Board of Selectmen/First Selectmen and John Hetherington to the State Legislature.
Van is as dedicated to the interests of our town and its quality of life as the best public servants or politically active members of the community I have had the pleasure of working with. I have no doubt that Van will carry out the duties of Constable with distinction and the highest integrity. I strongly encourage all registered voters to vote for Van Young for Constable of New Canaan.
