Deborah McFadden nominated to join Board of Selectmen

Deborah McFadden, vice chair of the Wilton Democratic Town Committee (DTC) and town constable, has been selected by the committee to replace Ted Hoffstatter, who resigned from the board in December.

“I’m delighted to have the opportunity to work hard for the betterment of Wilton and its citizens and I’m honored to have been selected by the Wilton Democratic Town Committee last night,” Ms. McFadden told The Bulletin on Wednesday, Jan. 7.

“I look forward to working with the other members of the Board of Selectmen in doing all we can for Wilton.”

DTC Chair Thomas Dec said he is “heartened” by the committee’s “overwhelming support” in nominating Ms. McFadden to the board.

Ranging from her involvement in school PTAs to her advocacy on town issues, Mr. Dec said, Ms. McFadden has been  deeply involved in the Wilton community and is “ready to hit the ground running.”

“We have no doubt that she will be an excellent representative and make many positive contributions through her service,” said Mr. Dec.

In addition to serving as  vice chair, Ms. McFadden is the chair of the DTC Campaign Committee. She is also independently contracted as a communications director at 911 Consulting, an emergency planning organization at 20 Indian Hill Road.

Ms. McFadden was also elected to the Connecticut Electoral College in May 2008 and voted as a member in the 2008 presidential election. She has also served as a Wilton constable.

It is up to the Board of Selectmen to vote on whether or not to confirm Ms. McFadden as its new selectmen.
