Message from First Selectman Jim Hayden

After serving seven terms as East Granby’s First Selectman I have decided not to run for re-election in the fall. My term will end on January 2, 2022 with a new First Selectman taking office on January 3, 2022. During my time in office I have been impressed by both the civic responsibility demonstrated by our residents and by the dedication of our town employees in their service to the town.

Together, we have accomplished things that leave East Granby well positioned to continue to be our community of choice. I am proud of our responsiveness to resident’s needs, fiscal responsibility, infrastructure improvements and response to emergencies ranging from the storms of 2011 & 2012 to COVID and everything in-between.

Change is healthy and in 2022 it will be someone else’s turn. However, there is still much left to do prior to January 3rd and I look forward to working with residents and staff to accomplish it. There has not been one moment in my almost fourteen years of municipal service that I have not been proud and grateful for the opportunity to be your First Selectman!

Regards,
Jim Hayden
First Selectman
Town of East Granby CT
