To the Editor:

The by-laws of the Democratic Town Committee provide that its nominating committee, of which I am the acting chair, shall advertise, fully, for persons wishing to be considered for appointed or elected office. Under the 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 interested in serving on the Police Commission to replace Mr. David Waters who must leave the Commission shortly due to term limit considerations. We are also interested in particular in meeting with anyone who wishes to serve on the Inland Wetlands Commission.

There are other boards and commissions where vacancies exist. Should you be interested in serving on any such board or committee, please contact me.

I can be reached at 203.762.9000 or via email.

Wilton’s greatest strength is in its volunteers. Please consider serving your town.

Paul Burnham
Acting Chairman
Democratic Nominating Committee
