Each year, the Weston Police Commission recognizes as Citizen of the Year an outstanding Westonite who rises above the many tireless volunteers working to make the town a special place to live.
It’s time again to submit nominations for the 2013 Citizen of the Year. To be chosen, a nominee should have demonstrated superb character, energy, integrity, and accomplishment in Weston. Historically, the person receiving the award has been involved in town programs, committees or organizations that contribute to public safety or the quality of life in the town.
Past Citizens of the Year include Ken Edgar, Lou and Maria Dempsey, Fred Schneider, Don Gary, John Pokorny, Dawn Egan, Joe Abruzzi, Lyette Segerdahl, and many other deserving Weston citizens. These people have given endless hours of their time to make Weston the special place it is today.
The Police Commission will be discussing each nominee at the end of March and will vote at the April board meeting.
To submit a nominee, send his or her name, along with biographical and contact information, to Jess DiPasquale by March 11. Include a brief description of why the person qualifies for the award, his or her accomplishments directly pertaining to Weston, and what specific character elements make the person stand out.
The Citizen of the Year award will be presented at the Annual Town Budget Meeting in April.
Names of nominees may be submitted by email to Jess DiPasquale at [email protected] or faxed to 203-221-8705. Call 203-895-5777 with any questions.
