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 current 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 not registered as a member the Republican party and who might be interested in serving on the Inland Wetlands Commission, the Parks and Recreation Commission, or the Water Pollution Control Authority. However, should you be interested in being kept in mind for another position, please let me know.

Additionally, we are advised that there may soon be a vacancy on the Board of Finance. Should you be interested in serving on that Board, 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
