On a cold, snowy Sunday evening, the newest Board of Selectmen for the Town of Greenwich was sworn-in in front of a large crowd at the Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich.
First Selectman Fred Camillo, and Selectwomen Lauren Rabin and Jill Oberlander, each took the oath of office, officially signifying the beginning of a new era in town. The ceremony was also historic, as this is the first time since 1923 that a newly-elected board does not have an incumbent from previous years.
Along with the community, several past and present Greenwich elected officials were in attendance. Camillo’s longtime friend and former colleague in Hartford, Scott Frantz, was the master of ceremonies.
Camillo is now the first person in Greenwich history who has served as a member of the state legislature, Representative Town Meeting, and now first selectman.
Standing in the same building where he played as a child, the Boys and Girls Club, then called the Greenwich Boys’ Club, Camillo reflected on his family history in public service, and his thoughts on the future with his colleagues, Rabin and Oberlander.
