On Wednesday evening, Oct. 20, the candidates for the Wilton Planning and Zoning Commission met at a candidate forum to answer questions submitted by residents and to share their perspectives and plans for how they would serve if elected.
The candidates for Wilton’s Planning and Zoning Commission are Eric Fanwick (D), Ken Hoffman (D), Christopher Pagliaro (R), Jill Warren (R), and Chris Wilson (R).
The candidate forum was sponsored by the Wilton League of Women Voters, Wilton Library and GOOD Morning Wilton. It was moderated by League of Women Voters moderator Jean Rabinow.
The event was livestreamed on GOOD Morning Wilton as it took place in the Wilton Library’s Brubeck Room.
Below are video clips of the event. We’ve included the entire event, and then also added clips of each individual question and the candidates’ answers.
Next Monday, Oct. 25, (7-9:15 p.m.) GMW will livestream the candidate forums for the Board of Finance and Board of Selectmen. Questions can also be submitted via email ahead of time for that event.

Introduction and Rules
Q: What are some constructive ways for Wilton to diversify our housing base? How can Wilton enable seniors who wish to downsize to stay in town? And on the other end of the spectrum, how can Wilton enable younger people and people in service sectors to afford to live here?
Q: Please tell us your objectives and hopes for how the town-owned properties in the Gilbert and Bennett mill, school and surrounding area will fit into Wilton’s intermediate town planning?
