Town candidates to be named

While the Wilton Democratic Town Committee (DTC) has endorsed Deborah McFadden in her quest to become first selectman, the Republican Town Committee (RTC) is expected to announce its candidate at a meeting Wednesday evening, July 22, 7:30, at Trackside.
The RTC does not caucus when it selects candidates. Only members of the committee may nominate a candidate and only members may vote. The committee has 40 members.
The DTC does caucus, meaning all registered Democrats are invited to attend its meeting, also on July 22, at 7:30 p.m., in the town hall annex.
Both town committees have solicited candidates and their nominating committees  have prepared rosters of potential candidates.
In addition to first selectman, the ballot on Nov. 3 will include choices for:
• Selectmen;
• Board of Finance;
• Board of Education;
• Board of Assessment Appeals;
• Planning and Zoning Commission;
• Zoning Board of Appeals;
• Constables.
