Darien first selectman sorry for leaving town

DARIEN - At a town meeting Thursday night, Darien First Selectman David Campbell apologized for leaving town the night after a major nor?easter hit the area.

Campbell, a Republican, left town Sunday for Utah on a trip to celebrate his wife's 50th birthday. He said he was wrong to go on the trip.

?I made a mistake,? Campbell said. ?I left town not knowing the circumstances of the storm.?

The purpose of the meeting was to discuss cleanup efforts and get updates on CL&P power outages.

Republican Selectwoman Jayme Stevenson says she was in contact with Campbell while he was away and stood by his decision.
