WILTON, Conn. - Wilton's three-term Republican First Selectman Bill Brennan announced Tuesday that he will run for a fourth term in November.
"With the encouragement of my family and many Wilton residents, I am pleased and very excited to announce my plan to seek a fourth term as first selectman," said Brennan , 76, standing on the steps of town hall surrounded by family, friends and supporters. "These are difficult economic times for our community as well as for many of our citizens. I believe my work is yet undone."
If re-elected, Brennan said his goals include: lowering municipal energy costs for town, school and village center commercial buildings by accelerating utility investments; improving Wilton's "deteriorated roads;" and stemming tax-rate growth by reducing costs and bringing new business to the town .
Because of the new four-year term implemented by a charter commission two years ago, Brennan said, he had to "seriously consider" whether to seek the longer term. First selectman's terms had previously been two years.
