WILTON, Conn. – Wilton First Selectman candidate Lynne Vanderslice announced that she has received multiple endorsements before Tuesday's election, including one from the man who is vacating the post and retiring.
The Republican candidate has secured 10 endorsements, including one from retiring First Selectman Bill Brennan.
“It has been my privilege to work with the two candidates currently seeking the position of first selectman and CEO of the Town of Wilton. I have enormous respect for both individuals, as the job is not easy,” Brennan said in a statement.
