Wilton's New Officials Take Office by Storm

WILTON, Conn. – It was an amiable swearing in of new officials in Wilton on Wednesday night, with everyone grateful to have been elected.

The ceremony was short, with Assistant Town Clerk Ann Fiteni administering the oaths to new board members.

First Selectman Bill Brennan was sworn in for his fourth, and he says last, term as first selectman. He said he was pleased with the group of officials elected with him.

With 150 members on the boards and committees that make up Wilton’s government, “We couldn’t run the town without them,” Brennan said. “I think we’ve got all our boards in good shape. That’s really the key as far as I’m concerned.”

Al Alper, Republican Town Committee chair and member of the Board of Finance, said he’s looking forward to another “exciting four years.” And he said one of his main concerns is continuing to work on transparency between the town government and residents. “I just want to continue that effort into all our boards and committees,” Alper said, reflecting on how the Board of Finance had begun its efforts.

Among the re-elections, some of the newly sworn in officials moved from one board to another, including Dick Dubow, or are entering their first elected position, such as Chris Finkelstein.

Dubow, who was elected to the Board of Selectman for a second time, has in recent years served on the Board of Education. “I have a lot of history with the town,” he said, adding that it’s a challenging time for the town and that he felt he could give more.

Newly elected Finkelstein said of serving on the Board of Education, “It’s humbling.”
