BREAKING: The Wilton Democratic Town Committee voted to submit Deborah McFadden as their choice to replace Ted Hoffstatter as a Wilton selectman. The DTC voted at its meeting last night, Jan. 6.
If approved by the Board of Selectmen at their next meeting on Jan. 20, McFadden will complete Hoffstatter’s term, which expires next November.
DTC chair Thomas Dec let GOOD Morning Wilton know about the nomination following the conclusion of the meeting.
“I am heartened by the overwhelming support of the DTC in nominating Deborah McFadden to the Board of Selectmen. She has been deeply involved in Wilton, ranging from her involvement in school PTAs to her advocacy on town issues 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,” Dec said.
According to Dec, McFadden started her career in government working for the mayor of Salt Lake City, assisting with community relations. She currently serves as a Wilton constable, is vice chair of the DTC, and was elected as a member of the U.S. Electoral College in 2008. McFadden currently is communications director for 911 Consulting, a firm focused on school security and other safety planning and management services.
Hoffstatter officially announced his resignation at the Dec. 15 BoS meeting, citing his coursework. Hoffstatter is pursuing a master’s degree at Fairfield University.
