Jennifer Tooker State of the Town Address
WESTPORT, February 5, 2023 - As prepared - Welcome everyone! I’m excited to be here with you all today. It’s an honor to share the stage with BOE Chair Lee Goldstein. Thank you to the Rotary Clubs for hosting us for the annual State of Town address. As a Sunrise Rotarian, I know firsthand everything you do for our community and think I can speak for everyone when I say that we are truly grateful for all of you.
And of course, thank you to The Library, for hosting us in this beautiful space. The award-winning, 5-star, only 5-star library in the State of CT hosts not only events like this and other more traditional library-type events, it is also the home to Verso Fest – an annual music and media conference – and it is the first known library to ever record, produce and release a vinyl album. We are so lucky to have this unbelievable asset in our community.
