I've been around a long, long time (try 90 years), and never in Westport's history have I seen such highly qualified candidates for first and second selectman as we're witnessing today in the candidacies of Jim Marpe (first selectman) and Avi Kaner (second selectman).

Sure they're Republicans (and I'm a long time Republican), but I truly and honestly believe these two men are as good as it gets.
