Town elections will be held on November 7, 2023, but the process of finding candidates is beginning now. Serving on a town board or commission is a rewarding experience and necessary to keep the town progressing forward. Boards and commissions are comprised of members of all political affiliations who work together in the best interest of the town.
The slate of candidates is typically endorsed by each party in July. A candidate can also petition to have their name placed on the ballot. Unaffiliated voters can be endorsed by the Democrat or Republican Town Committees. All interested residents are encouraged to consider this opportunity and send a brief bio/resume to the chairperson of either the Democratic Town Committee: Tom Frenaye, firstname.lastname@example.org or the Republican Town Committee: Tracy Hespelt, email@example.com. Visit the CT Secretary of State website for additional information.
Candidates are sought for the following boards: Assessment Appeals, Education, Finance, First Selectman, Selectmen, Town Clerk, Treasurer, Fire, Planning and Zoning, Police, Water Pollution Control and Tax Collector.
