Here's a look at what made news this year in Greenwich Politics.
A familiar Board of Selectman in town. First Selectman Peter Tesei, Selectman Drew Marzullo and Selectman David Theis were sworn in for another 2 year term.
"Putting the interests of Greenwich first is more than just a slogan. It is what we do with and for our citizens and we will continue to do so for the next 2 years," says First Selectman Peter Tesei.
During the fall elections, the Democratic party did put up a fight, nominating Beth Krumeich to join the race for First Selectman in September. Although she ultimately fell short, the Democrats felt that they took a step forward as a party.
"Keep building on the base we've established in this race. We've tried to keep it to the issues and I feel very proud of the way all of us worked hard to focus on the issues that are important to our community," says Beth Krumeich, First Selectman Candidate for the Democratic Party.
"I'm feeling great but there's always mixed emotions being a democrat in Greenwich because with wins there's inevitably losses," says Selectman Drew Marzullo.
This year 37.12% of Greenwich voters cast ballots in the local election, which is roughly consistent with the municipal elections in 2011.
