To the editor:
I am writing this letter to support Kip Koons for Selectman. Kip has consistently volunteered his time to make Darien a great place to live. Kip is a person of integrity and has quietly made significant contributions to the town.
Kip was a member of the Building Committee for the town garage renovation. This was a $6 million project that was delivered one month early and about 9% under budget.
He assisted our first selectman in the negotiations for the town’s purchase of 16 acres from the Ox Ridge Hunt Club.
He now serves as co-chairman of the Building Committee for a new Ox Ridge Elementary School, a project which includes the consolidation of district-wide ELP [Early Learning Program] students into the new facility.
- Editor’s note: Letters to the editor about the Nov. 5 election will be accepted up until 11:59 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 30.
Kip has been instrumental in keeping taxes low, increasing the quality of our infrastructure and proposing sound budgets.
Please join me in casting a vote for Kip and our Republican selectmen candidates.
Brent Hayes is a former chairman of the Darien Republican Town Committee and a former member of the Representative Town Meeting.
