Letter: Democrats seek candidates

To the Editors:
The by-laws of the Democratic Town Committee provide that its nominating committee, of which I am the vice chair, shall advertise, fully, for persons interested in being nominated for appointed or elected office. While membership in the Democratic Party is always strongly preferred, it is not a prerequisite for consideration.
At this time we are interested in hearing from any Wilton resident who would be interested in running for office as a selectman — including the office of first selectman, or as a member of the Board of Finance, the Board of Education, the Planning & Zoning Commission, the Zoning Board of Appeals, and the Board of Assessment Appeals.  We are also interested in hearing from individuals interested in serving on the Social Services Commission.
The nominating committee will be interviewing candidates on the evenings of Tuesday, June 9, June 16 and June 23 for these positions.
If you are interested in being considered for any of these positions, or being kept in mind for others, please contact our chairman, Paul Burnham, at 203-762-9000 or at pburnham@gregoryand adams.com.
Wilton’s greatest strength is in its volunteers. Please consider serving your town.
Ross Tartell, vice chair
Democratic Nominating Committee
Wilton, June 1
