First Selectman’s 2018 State of the Town Remarks
By Jayme Stevenson, First Selectman, Darien, December 5, 2018


Good evening Mr. Moderator, members of the RTM and my fellow elected and appointed colleagues.  Would the new RTM members please stand so we can welcome you appropriately!  The Board of Selectmen is looking forward to continuing our work together to ensure Darien remains the special place it is to raise a family and operate a business.  Although he couldn’t be with us tonight, I want to thank Interim Superintendent, Dr. Elliot Landon, for his guidance and leadership while we search for a new Superintendent.
