Zeoli will be seeking his fifth term as First Selectman.

“I will continue taking the tough issues facing our community head-on. We must continue to stress financial responsibility, both from a cost reduction and revenue generation standpoint. We have had great success with our commercial economic development and will continue to pursue the growth of our commercial tax base with a sound, well thought-out plan. Together with my Republican team, I will continue to support and improve our schools which are among the best in the state. We have always and will continue to help seniors maintain a comfortable lifestyle in our town,”Zeoli is quoted as saying in the release.

The Republican Town Committee has also endorsed a “solid team of incumbents along with some talented newcomers who will join Zeoli on the Republican slate.”
