Message from Ken to the Community:
I’m enthused to have been entrusted by the Board of Trustees to serve as the Town Administrator. I have worked in a variety of communities around the country but upon visiting Paonia for the first time I knew this is where I wanted to come to live, work, and play. As you can see from the picture to the left; I have been a member of an award winning cook team. I specialize in Texas Chili and a 5-5-5 salsa (not for the light of heart – I make it HOT). I do hope the sports fans of the community will forgive me for not giving up my boyhood fandom. Being from Maine I have rooted for the Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins, and – yes – the Patriots all my life and don’t plan on giving up on any of them any time soon. I fully plan on making Paonia my home so if you see me around town; just say hi.
