ALT board member Tracy Pennoyer and First Selectwoman Samantha Nestor text the results
Weston voters overwhelmingly approved sale of the Fromson-Strassler property to Aspetuck Land Trust in the voting portion of a Special Town Meeting.
The final count: 680 yes, 55 no. That’s 92.5 percent in favor, 7.5 percent not. Turnout was larger than most expected. The Registrars tell us voters came in steadily throughout the day and evening.
First Selectwoman Samantha Nestor said she is “thrilled with the outcome.”
“This makes it clear,” she said, “that when we work together we get amazing results. It’s a win for long term thinking. Weston now gets what will be a beautiful amenity.”
“I’m so thankful to my friend Stephan Grozinger, to David Brant and everyone at Aspetuck Land Trust, and especially to Chris Spaulding and Jonathan Luiz. Well done!”
