Letter: Democrats seek nominees for openings
To the Editors:
The by-laws of the Democratic Town Committee provide that its nominating committee, of which I am the chair, shall advertise, fully, for persons interested in being nominated for appointed or elected office. Under current procedures adopted by the Board of Selectmen, members of the Democratic party must apply for appointed positions in town government through our committee, members of the Republican party must apply for appointed positions through the Republican Town Committee, and unaffiliated voters may apply through either party or by direct petition to the Board of Selectmen. Our committee welcomes inquiries and expressions of interest from unaffiliated voters.
At this time we are particularly interested in hearing from any Wilton resident who is not registered as a member of either of the major parties and who might be interested in serving on Wilton’s Commission on Social Services. (The commission‘s membership now includes five Democrats, the maximum number of members of one political party permitted by the ordinance which created the commission.)
We are also interested in hearing from any Wilton resident who is not registered as a member of the Republican party and who is interested in serving on Wilton’s Retirement Investment Committee or Conservation Commission.
If you are interested in being considered for any of these positions, or being kept in mind for others, please contact me at 203-762-9000 or at email@example.com.
Wilton’s greatest strength is in its volunteers. Please consider serving your town.
Paul Burnham, Chairman
Democratic Nominating Committee
Wilton, Sept. 13
