Letter: Vacancy in RTM District 8

To the Editor:

A seat on the RTM in District 8 has become available due to the imminent move out of state of our colleague Lee Arthurs. We appreciate his work and his leadership on the many issues presented to the RTM for review. All RTM members join us in extending best wishes to Lee and his family for their next adventures.

His departure leaves a vacancy in District 8. In accordance with the Town Charter, (Section C5-8C3), the vacancy must be filled by a registered voter living in RTM District 8. No party affiliation is required since Westport’s RTM is non-partisan. The term expires in November 2019.

Residents of RTM District 8 interested in being considered to fill the vacancy are encouraged to remit their resume by July 5 to the Town Clerk, Patricia Strauss by email: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or by mail, 110 Myrtle Ave., Westport, CT 06880.
