I wish to extend my sincere condolences to the residents of the Town of Middlefield on the loss of First Selectman Ed Bailey. I worked closely with Ed on several Durham/Middlefield partnerships as well as some regional efforts, and know firsthand how committed he was to your community. I commend Bob Yamartino, Carol Bufithis, town staff and officials for the respectful and thorough way you have handled town affairs during this most difficult time.
Ed Bailey was a friend and colleague and will be missed by many in the Town of Durham.
First Selectman of Durham
