I'd like to take this opportunity to voice my support for Sven Englund in his bid for Town Council. Sven and I graduated from New Canaan High School in 1971. While in high school we skied and hiked together and then we added rock climbing to our activities. Now you might ski and hike with someone you're not sure about, but when your life depends on the guy at the other end of the rope, it is a different story and we have remained trusted friends ever since.
Sven has been a great asset to the New Canaan Fire Company as a member, an officer and for the last six years as a commissioner. I applaud his desire to join the fray in Town Council and I offer him my Republican vote to help him on his way. I encourage all others to vote with me for Sven. He can be trusted.
