WILTON, Conn.—At a recent gathering of supporters for Deb McFadden’s bid to become Wilton’s first selectman, Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman and Attorney General George Jepsen visited her Wilton home.

Commenting on the need for fiscal responsibility in balancing taxes and economic development, Wyman said, “With her leadership experience and incredible energy, Deb is the right person to make things happen in Wilton.”

Jepsen said he viewed McFadden as an “outstanding candidate who knows how to get things done.”

He continued, “She’ll govern with both a heart as well as discipline.”

McFadden, a Democrat, is running to replace First Selectman Bill Brennan, who is not seeking re-election. McFadden is the first Democratic candidate for first selectman in a decade in Wilton.

McFadden is a member of the five-member Wilton Board of Selectmen. She was appointed to that position in January when Ted Hoffstatter resigned from the board.

Lynne Vanderslice is the Republican candidate for first selectman in the November election.
