Letter: Darien GOP Chair on Democrat’s ‘Irresponsibility’


Two-cent U.S. postage stamp. You, too can put in your two cents' worth with a letter to the editor published by Darienite.com. Email it to dave@darienite.com.

To the editor:

Once again, Democrats in Darien and across the state have shown they have no plans or solutions for Gov. Dan Malloy’s fiscal irresponsibility.

Instead of discussing ways to fix the economy and bring jobs back to Connecticut, they are focused on fear mongering and national party politics. Voters should remember that years of Dan Malloy and Bob Duff have put us in the financial hole we find ourselves in today.

Fortunately, in 16 days, voters across the state will go to the polls to support Bob Stefanowski and reliable Republican plans to cut taxes and grow our flagging economy.

Chris Taylor
Darien RTC Chair

Darien Town Government’s Redesigned Website Is Online

Town Government Website 8-2-16

Hey, good lookin' — part of what the revised town government website looks like on Tuesday afternoon.

It may be only temporary (we haven’t received an announcement, and there can always be glitches), but the Darien town government website has a new look.

Town Administrator Kate Buch said at a recent meeting that at least one person from each town government department was being trained on how to use the website.

Here’s what the Home page looks like (the pictures rotate):

Hey, good lookin’ — part of what the revised town government website looks like on Tuesday afternoon.


The pictures on the Home page come from Wikimedia Commons (where these particular ones are free to use by anybody and posted without copyright).

Some of the old Web pages still look the same, as of late afternoon Tuesday, such as this one:

Web Page Darien TV79 8-2-16

The Darien TV79 Web page, still old school, as of late Wednesday afternoon.


In some cases, the old and the new pages are both on the Web, and clicking on links from one page to another will sometimes get you a “404” error page, sometimes get you another old-style page — but that’s the kind of thing that happens in a website transition.

This gives a sense of what the new and old Web pages look like. Here’s the old Town Administrator Web page (still on the Web as of late Wednesday afternoon):

Town Administrator Web Page OLD 8-2-16

Old-style Town Administrator Web page (we reached it from the old-style TV79 Web page)


Town Administrator Web Page NEW 8-2-16

New style Web page for the town administrator.


Error Page Town Website 8-2-16

Part of an error page you may get while tooling around the website as it transitions.
