Letter to the Editor


First Selectwoman Samantha Nestor has the vision and leadership skills to navigate the policy challenges that face Weston over the next several years. I strongly endorse Sam for your vote on November 2.

These policy challenges will require our leaders to balance Weston’s rural charm with the new demands for local services while maintaining the quality of our highly ranked school system.

While serving as Second Selectwoman, and now as First Selectwoman, Sam has been driving our decision-making process on critical infrastructure projects like sidewalks, road maintenance, school campus upkeep, and the Village District. She is taking the long-term view of how we manage our economic resources that support our future as a wonderful place to live and maintain Weston’s AAA credit rating.

Sam succeeded our friend and past First Selectman Chris Spaulding just as the Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus began to surge. She has pivoted well to pandemic management and promoted town-wide communications to keep us up to date on public health news. She abides by Governor Lamont’s school mask mandate because it is the law, and it is the right thing to do to protect our unvaccinated children and their futures.

Human rights advocate and author J.F. Clarke once said, “A politician thinks of the next election; a statesman, of the next generation.” Sam Nestor re-defines that quote as a stateswoman committed to Weston’s next generation. I’ll play the politician: vote for Sam!
