Ruth Stanley moved to the Valley from St. Louis, Missouri in 1993 and has been a fulltime resident/home owner in the Town of Avon since 1999. She lives with her two golden retrievers, Kaki and Piper, and takes full advantage of all of the amenities the Valley has to offer, especially the lake in the summer supping with her "kids" and attending events.
Witnessing first-hand, the growth in development and re-development, additions to transportation, the transportation center, the abundance of improvements and additions to Nottingham Park and Lake, the Recreation Center, biking and hiking trail accessibility, as well as the green initiatives the town has accomplished; Ruth has never been more proud to call Avon her home.
Ruth has been a regular at Town Council Meetings and has always striven to keep up with the town’s current events as well as participate in the many Town special events. She has been a Town Volunteer in the past, and, prior to election, a member of the Cultural Arts Special Events (CASE) Committee since its inception in 2017. She has also committed her time as a member of the selection committees for both the new mural project (Rec Center) and the “sculptures around town”.
“I have always felt like more than just a citizen of Avon. I consistently aspire to be a part of, and give back to, the Town. How better to do so, then to serve on the Town Council.”
