Local

The town of Greenwich is governed by a number of elected officials. These include:

The Board of Selectmen Office is the focal point of Greenwich town government. Along with its many responsibilities and duties, constituent contact with the public is an extremely important function of the day-to-day business of the Office. Every effort is made to keep open all lines of communications between government and the people it serves.

First Selectman: Peter Tesei
Phone: (203) 622-7710

Selectman: John Toner
Phone: (203) 622-7714

Selectman: Drew Marzullo
Phone: (203) 622-7706

The Town is governed by a Representative Town Meeting. According to early records, the first Town Meeting in Greenwich was held on February 5, 1664. Its purpose was to request the General Assembly to make Greenwich a town separate from Stamford. On May 11, 1665 Greenwich was made a town.

As time passed, increasing population made it impossible for all the townspeople to assemble for the Town Meeting. In 1933, Greenwich adopted the Representative Town Meeting as its legislative unit. Every two years Greenwich residents elect fellow citizens to serve in the Representative Town Meeting.

Today’s RTM consists of 230 members elected by the voters in the town’s 12 districts. RTM delegates run on a non-partisan basis, serve without compensation, and are elected for a two-year term. Among their responsibilities:

  • Approve all expenditures by the town over $5000
  • Approve, reduce, and eliminate appropriations
  • Approve or reject nominations to town bodies as made by the Selectmen
  • Decide whether the town shall accept federal or state funds for town projects
  • Create special committees to deal with particular subjects such as labor contracts, claims, and redistricting
  • Pass “sense of the meeting” resolutions urging that other branches of government initiate desired legislation, or expressing disapproval of actions that have been taken
  • Act as the final planning authority on municipal improvements
  • Initiate and pass ordinances

Residents interested in serving as RTM delegates should contact their District leader to get involved.
