As part of his 1989 inaugural address, President George H.W. Bush said the following:

“We cannot hope only to leave our children a bigger car, a bigger bank account. We must hope to give them a sense of what it means to be a loyal friend, a loving parent, a citizen who leaves his home, his neighborhood and town better than he found it. What do we want the men and women who work with us to say when we are no longer there? That we were more driven to succeed than anyone around us? Or that we stopped to ask if a sick child had gotten better, and stayed a moment there to trade a word of friendship?”

Thank you, Mr. President, for your many years of service, your leadership and your humanity.  The world is a better place because of your efforts. Rest in Peace. We will take it from here.

In 2019, the Ridgefield Republican Town Committee will meet monthly at 7:30 p.m. on the third Thursday in the Large Conference Room at Town Hall. All Republicans are welcome to join us in our efforts to make our town better than we found it.
