Guman, Jen LEdmond Town Hall Board of Managers

In the last year my 8 year old has repeatedly told me how lucky we are and much she loves living on Main Street. When I asked her why, she enthusiastically said how much she loves walking to the Library or to Dunkin Donuts, to school, the bakery. And of course, the movie theater! It was refreshing to see the joy in innocent eyes about all the resources we have at our doorsteps. Hearing her perspective reinforced just how lucky we are to have such a wonderful town with local events.

I think it is important to help support these efforts and growth for future generations. I believe I can help expand the Edmond Town Hall to be more than a movie theater. It can be a “go to” place for residents of all ages to create memorable experiences with family and friends. Creating a calendar of events from comedy shows to concerts to dance recitals, movies and arts will aid in the growth of the community and create an establishment where people can go and know they will create lasting memories.

As part of the Board of Managers for Edmond Town Hall my goal is to bring fresh eyes and new perspective for the space. ETH is more than just a movie theater and I believe I can help the existing board move it forward to a place where families and friends go to create experiences.

I’ve lived in many towns from Milford to Stamford but in 2011 I planted my roots in Newtown. My husband and I have two girls, an 8 year old and a 21 month old and we live in the center of town on Main Street. We are an active family participating in triathlons and road races. We also enjoy summertime music festivals and arts.
