The Old Saybrook Town Committee Nominating Committee is interested in speaking with town residents interested in running for positions on municipal boards and commissions in the November 2021 election cycle.
Elected boards and commissions include:
- Board of Selectmen (each one of these would link to the page for the appropriate board/comm)
- Town Treasurer
- Tax Collector
- Board of Finance
- Board of Education
- Board of Assessment Appeals
- Planning Commission
- Police Commission
- Zoning Commission
- Zoning Board of Appeals
- Parks and Recreation Commission
- Harbor Management Commission
The process for interested town residents is to speak with the Nominating Committee about the position they are interested in serving as a candidate. The nominating committee then presents a slate of candidates to the full Democratic Town Committee, no later than July 26, 2021.
Boards and Commissions have different meeting schedules, responsibilities and terms. Interested town residents are encouraged to attend the board or commission meeting that they are interested in serving on. At present, all board and commission meetings are held virtually.
A candidate information meeting will be held virtually on June 23, 2021 at 7pm. Pre-registration is recommended for this event. This event will serve as an opportunity to speak with current board and commission members to better understand the role and responsibilities of membership and service.
Interested candidates can email firstname.lastname@example.org to express interest.
