I was excited to learn that Sven Englund was nominated to run for the Town Council here in New Canaan because he brings some very valuable skills to the position.

As a member of the Fire Department for the last 35 years, first as a firefighter and then holding positions of assistant chief and then president, and has also served on the Fire Commission for the last seven years, Sven has a very good handle on what it takes to keeping us safe and protected.

Sven, and also his two children, have attended the New Canaan Public School system and he has a very strong commitment to our school system. As a professional engineer, Sven is concerned with the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) challenges facing our country and would like to see that our schools share this commitment. This is why I am endorsing Sven Englund for the Town Council.
