DARIEN, Conn. Darien needs a new senior center, but the shuffle isnt the answer.
Why do we need a 23,000-square-foot senior center? That would give Darien a senior center that is twice the size of New Canaans, 1.5 times the size of Ridgefields, and 1.9 times the size of Westports (and Westport has a senior population that is nearly two times the size of Dariens).
And why are we spending $2.6 million to move 30 full-time Board of Education employees at a cost of $86,000 per person when the Board of Education never asked to be moved and has no need to do so?
Lets focus on our needs, rather than wasting money just because we can afford it. Build a right-size senior center. Leave the Board of Education where it is.
Vote NO on Dec. 13 to Stop The Shuffle .
