Jim Marpe Gets Tanked

Jim Marpe is the Joe Biden of Westport politics.

Whether you agree with his stands or not, you know the guy loves his job.

Yesterday, Westport’s 1st Selectman sat in the dunk tank at Sunrise Rotary‘s annual Great Duck Race.

For anyone who wanted to take a shot at our chief executive — or just hoped to support a great effort — it was a perfect way to start the summer.

And what was the rest of the Great Duck Race like?

Here is the dumping of the ducks, into the Saugatuck River.

    I will give him a lot of credit. He always has a smile on his face and people have commented on how accessible and approachable he is as the First Selectman. At least he participated in a cause that helps others! He at least had the good sense not to dress like a freakin Pirate and Mermaid and look like a swashbuckling fool at the Mermaid Parade in Coney Island!

  2. What a good sport!

  3. Jim is a great advocate for our town and works in the best interest of the community. He also happens to be a great sport to take on the great duck dunk tank.

    Thanks Jim
