Darien Shuffle Referendum.

As you drive around Darien, Connecticut this December you will see many signs on the “Shuffle Referendum” Yes or NO? The town  is buzzing with the debate of should we do the shuffle or not?

The appropriation of $7 million for The Shuffle would move the senior center programs from Edgerton Street to Town Hall and the Board of Education offices from Town Hall to 35 Leroy Ave. VoteYesDarien.com are in favour of the shuffle.

The opponents to the shuffle, StopTheShuffle.com say that this is an unnecessary use of tax payer’s money:

  • Moving 30 full time Board of Education administers to the old library at a cost of $86,000 per employee
  • 23,000 square foot senior center is too large and not needed.

The Referendum will be voted on December 13th, 2011 currently scheduled from 6 am to 8 pm. The vote will be paper ballot at sex regular polling locations in Darien.

In the past 22 years there have been five referendum votes in Darien, Connecticut.
