Op-Ed: ABC House launches annual appeal
Posted on Wednesday December 12, 2018

With today’s political upheavals – both national and international, combined with worry about global warming, terrorism, immigration and racism — developing the leadership for today and tomorrow’s challenges is a major concern for many American citizens. We are fortunate to live in a community where this is a high priority. Since 1963, A Better Chance in New Canaan has been opening the door to greater educational opportunities for a highly promising but underserved population of high school-aged students. They do this by carefully selecting two new eighth grade graduates each year to create a total of eight highly motivated and high achieving students, two each for grades nine through 12, to enjoy the benefits of a top-drawer education at New Canaan High School. ABC provides room and board, a resident director and the assistance of two live-in tutors at the ABC House at 64 Locust Avenue in New Canaan, as well as a part time cook and administrative assistant. This year’s resident students come from areas ranging from the Bronx, Queens and Harlem, N.Y., to Newark, N.J., and Philadelphia, Pa. The students are all assigned to a host family, volunteers who welcome the opportunity to make a difference in a deserving child’s life and also enrich the lives of their own children by hosting an ABC student every weekend for an overnight and Sunday dinner. Now launching its annual appeal, A Better Chance of New Canaan is part of a national non-profit organization which has helped pave the way for more than 14,000 scholars who have graduated from member schools, a majority of whom have matriculated to some of the most highly competitive and prestigious colleges and universities in the country. A Better Chance does not just help students academically; the staff and volunteers also provide advice on the college selection and application process and pursuing options for financial aid. This fall Alan Heaps, national director of the ABC College Preparatory School Program wrote a letter of recommendation on behalf of Ryan Hernandez, an ABC Scholar and senior at NCHS, writing that “Ryan has risen to the top of our competitive admission process and made the most of the accompanying opportunities.” Ryan is interested in pursuing a career in computer science/engineering and took a two-week summer course at Princeton to study cyber security this year. Speaking of his ABC experience, he said, “We are a fun and exciting group that bounce off of each other. We definitely attempt to make an accepting living space where we can all trust each other and help push ourselves.” For further information visit abchouseofnc.org.

Letter: Town survey must be done right
Posted on Wednesday December 12, 2018

Editor, Advertiser: Surveying residents of New Canaan about priorities is the most transparent way to address spending and culture, but it has to be handled professionally and scientifically to be valuable. There is no way to draw meaningful conclusions without customer (resident) narratives being included as part of the research and narratives have to be gathered in person. It doesn’t help to know how someone feels without understanding why. A survey of yes/no or ranking questions doesn’t allow for follow-up questions –– and the answers where the real data are hidden. Any idea to handle this with the ubiquitous Survey Monkey app will create questions not insightful answers. Liz Donovan and Steve Karl have it right. Data-driven analysis is critical to ascertain how residents prioritize spending, i.e. does everything have to be number one or even perfect. Jim Kucharczyk’s counter that the town do it professionally, is the correct path if elected officials are to rely on the information gathered for actionable insights. Make educated decisions based on scientific data. Robert Doran The post Letter: Town survey must be done right appeared first on New Canaan Advertiser.

Library announces new trustees
Posted on Wednesday December 12, 2018

Thomas Teles New Canaan residents Thomas Teles and David Rucci have been appointed to the New Canaan Library Board of Trustees. “Tom and David are our most recent appointees, and earlier this year we were delighted to have three other accomplished, community-minded individuals join our board,” New Canaan LIbrary Executive Director Lisa Oldham said. “We welcomed Marie Dolan, Thomas Joyce, and Christopher O’Connor, who all joined the Board within the last six months. We are thrilled to have their expertise and talents, and know they will complement and inspire our team of dedicated board members as we embark on a transformative year ahead.”   Teles, his wife Sharon and their children are residents of New Canaan and supporters of the Library. Recently retired from Goldman Sachs after 21 years, Teles was a partner in the asset management unit. Along with his new board membership at New Canaan Library, he serves on the board of the Touch Foundation, a non-profit organization that works to strengthen the healthcare system in Tanzania. “Libraries make leaders. Harry S. Truman once said, ‘Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.’” Teles said. “I was really drawn to help the Library at this time given the landmark project plan which will do so much for our community,” he added. David Rucci Rucci, his wife Barbara, and their children are longtime residents of New Canaan. Rucci is a partner at the law firm of Lampert Toohey & Rucci, LLC, and a member of both the New Canaan Bar Association and the Rotary Club of New Canaan. He has served on the boards of the New Canaan Community Foundation, the Lakeview Cemetery Association and The Getabout.  In addition to New Canaan Library, he currently serves as a board member for the New Canaan Chamber of Commerce. “I am excited for the opportunity to serve on the Board, as the library is one of the most important institutions in our town,” Rucci said. “It is a place where our family has found information, ideas and a community.  We are always grateful to the Library staff and volunteers who make the library one of this country’s best” “Tom and David embody the spirit of community and enthusiasm that make our library such a vibrant, and vital, part of New Canaan,” said Robert Butman, president of the Board of Trustees. “We are extremely fortunate to have them on the board.” The post Library announces new trustees appeared first on New Canaan Advertiser.

Ten questions with Ned Lamont
Posted on Wednesday December 12, 2018

New Canaan’s governor-elect, Ned Lamont, recently answered a series of questions from The Darien Times.  New Canaan Advertiser sister paper, The Darien Times recently submitted a series of questions to Connecticut’s governor-elect, Ned Lamont, and he responded this week. Below are our questions and his answers, published unedited. We covered topics such as tolls, school district aid, and making the state business friendly and more unified geographically and politically. DT: Can you explain what you agree with or disagree with Dan Malloy’s approach to state leadership? NL: We are very different people and we will be very different governors. DT: How do you expect to unify and make the state successful? NL: The Connecticut I know is one where people are united by our basic values: we want good jobs with fair wages, access to affordable, high-quality health care, homes that we can afford, and a brighter future for all of our children. The best way to achieve these goals is to revitalize our economy and restart job growth. Labor and business, cities and suburbs, Republicans and Democrats — we’re all in this together. I’ve brought people together throughout my career in business, and I’ll do it again as Governor. DT: What is your viewpoint on wealthier vs. lower income school districts in terms of state aid? Do you feel all students deserve the same rights? Do you feel median income determines what communities can afford? NL: Every child in Connecticut deserves a high-quality public education. Unfortunately, our state has not met this commitment to our children. As a result, Connecticut has one of the largest achievement gaps between children of different socioeconomic backgrounds of any state in the country, lagging far behind peer states with similar student populations. That’s not just morally unacceptable — it’s an impediment to revitalizing Connecticut’s economy and bringing broadly-shared prosperity to our state. State education funding needs to be predictable, sustainable, and sufficient to provide an excellent public education to children in all of our communities. Resolving our fiscal crisis so that we can sustainably finance investments in our public schools is my number one priority as governor. DT: What is your viewpoint on affordable housing in Connecticut? NL: Connecticut’s challenge is to preserve what makes our towns such great places to call home, while ensuring that sky-high housing prices don’t keep young people, new entrepreneurs, and working families locked out of success in our state. My administration will work with local leaders around the state to encourage the responsible development of a wide range of housing options in every community. Business leaders have made clear to me that when their companies consider moving to or away from Connecticut, one of their primary concerns is whether their employees will be able to afford a nearby home. DT: Fairfield County residents feel disenfranchised. The state is very different income wise. I understand it is difficult to juggle different areas and demographics. How do you plan on doing so? NL: Our 169 cities and towns are diverse. As governor, my door will be open to all of them — and I’ll be on the road just as I was on the campaign trail, meeting people in their communities and learning from local leaders about local needs. I’ve lived in Fairfield County for four decades. I know the local issues well and understand that every region of our state makes important contributions and has unique needs. As governor, I will be attentive to our state’s diversity while ensuring every city and town is respected and represented in Hartford. DT: In terms of tax increases, statewide tax and tolls, what can you say to make those who think they need to move out of state feel comfortable staying? Can you explain your plan? NL: While there is a lot of work to be done to improve our state’s economy and to stabilize our budget, Connecticut remains the state with the best quality-of-life anywhere in our country. That’s why I’m proud to be Connecticut’s next governor. I will work hard every day to resolve our state’s long-term fiscal crisis and help grow the economy, and I hope that all of our residents can partner with us as we make these hard decisions. I won’t be able to turn Connecticut around in one year or one budget. But I will give the state a roadmap to fiscal stability and economic growth — one that families, towns, and businesses can plan around. By making the hard decisions, I know that we can reinvest in our communities and in our state and continue to improve our strong quality-of-life. Our state’s fiscal crisis has meant higher taxes, fewer jobs, and less population growth. We’ve spent year after year paying for the mistakes of our past, compounding those errors in the present, and failing as a result to invest in our future. I won’t accept more of the same. My first budget will be responsibly balanced, without relying on gimmicks or short-term patches. It will preserve our ability to make critical investments in education and infrastructure, while holding the line on taxes. DT: How are you trying to make Connecticut a business friendly state? NL: I’ll be the first Connecticut governor in decades who has started up and run a business – so I come into office with a fundamentally different perspective than my predecessors. Revitalizing Connecticut’s economy starts with the tone from the top. I’ve been engaging our state’s business leaders on the campaign trail and during my gubernatorial transition, and will continue to have a robust dialogue with the business community as governor. From there, I have plans to reduce or eliminate the business taxes and regulations that make Connecticut uncompetitive with our neighbors, and to aggressively campaign to recruit and retain vibrant businesses in Connecticut. DT: How do you console those concerned about tolls impacting their lives and businesses? NL: We can’t have a 21st century economy with a deficient 20th century transportation system: we must improve the roads and bridges that people rely on to get to work and that businesses depend on to move goods throughout the state. Moving Connecticut forward requires better infrastructure that reliably connects Connecticut’s communities to each other, the region and the world. That is why my plan levies electronic tolls on heavy trucks, which cause disproportionate damage to our roads without paying their fair share for upkeep and improvements. I voted for this year’s constitutional amendment to end the raiding of our transportation fund, and will be committed to state budgets that don’t drain investments in our infrastructure to patch over deficits. DT: Do you plan to encourage Fairfield County state reps to make sure that their communities’ voices are heard, even if they share two communities that are very different demographics? NL: No matter where they live, residents of Connecticut all want leaders who will fight for decent jobs that can support our families, build a better life for our children, and secure our futures in retirement. As governor, my first priority will be resolving Connecticut’s fiscal crisis so that we can make critical investments in education, infrastructure, and workforce development. I will work with every state legislator to help us build that future together, and my door will always be open to representatives of every community in our state. DT:  Fundamentally, as a Fairfield County paper, the thing I hear most is that the state government is happy and eager to take their money but disinterested in their concerns or problems. Do you plan on addressing that or fixing that as a Fairfield County resident? NL: I’ve lived in Fairfield County for four decades; Annie and I raised our kids here. I have a clear understanding of the issues important to the families and communities in this area of the state. As governor, I will serve every community in Connecticut.
