Letter: Town Council candidate Englund is true blue
As a fellow native New Canaanite, I would like to endorse Sven Englund as a candidate for Town Council. Sven and his two children are all graduates of New Canaan Public Schools and as an engineer, he is concerned with the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) educational challenges facing our country.
Though Sven has not previously been part of our town government, he has served our community for more than 35 years as a volunteer fireman and as a volunteer with the Antique Fire Engine Association supporting many community events. We have worked together as first responders for more than three decades and he is always responsible, caring and calm. As the president of New Canaan Fire Department for multiple terms, Sven has overseen countless budgets and capital expenditures.
Sven cares deeply about his hometown. With his dad still here, Sven feels strongly that our growing senior population should be taken care of. It is important to maintain the character of New Canaan in the years ahead, so I hope you will join me in supporting Sven Englund for Town Council. He is true blue and will work hard for his town.
