Woodbridge Democrats pick slate for May municipal election

WOODBRIDGE  - Democrats have nominated First Selectman Edward Maum Sheehy for another term in the town's top spot, according to a release.

Sheehy, who has served three terms as first selectman, as well as part of a term after former First Selectwoman Amey W. Marrella left the post in 2006, is a lawyer and had served as a member of the town's Board of Selectmen for 27 years before he won the top spot.

"Sheehy's nomination was unanimously endorsed by Democrats at the party's official nominating caucus," the release said. 

The  municipal election will be held May 6.

"I am grateful for this vote of confidence and believe we have a solid record of fiscal responsibility, modest budget growth, and success on projects like bringing natural gas into town and plans for a new public works facility," Sheehy said, in the release. "Stability like this in town government and ongoing excellence in our public schools continue to make Woodbridge an attractive community in which to live and raise a family."

Also endorsed are: Board of Selectmen incumbents Beth Heller, Susan Jacobs, and Laurence Grotheer, Amity Regional Board of Education incumbents Patricia Cardozo and Rita Gedansky, and Woodbridge Board of Education candidates Lisa Gigilo Conner, Christianne Jaffe, and Karen Baldwin Kravetz, the release said.

Sheila McCreven was nominated  for the Board of Assessment Appeals, incumbents Henry Nusbaum, Mark Levine, and John Santucci for the Zoning Board of Appeals, and Aldon Hynes for Zoning Board of Appeals alternate, the release said.
