Ken Dartley is Wilton's newest selectman. At the Board of Selectmen meeting on Sept. 21, the Republican was named to fill the seat left vacant by Jim Saxe, who submitted his resignation on Sept. 8.
Dartley was interviewed for the position before the meeting began and his nomination was approved by a vote of 3-1. Voting for him were First Selectman Bill Brennan and selectmen Deborah McFadden and Michael Kaelin. Voting against was Democrat Dick Dubow, who said he did so because Dartley had signed the Sensible Wilton petition calling for a revote of the Miller-Driscoll School renovation project referendum. Dartley is not a member of Sensible Wilton.
