Mallozzi Sets Priorities

Planning for a new administration, New Canaan's First Selectman-Elect Robert Mallozzi has the Board of Finance at the top of his to-do list.

Today Rob Mallozzi is scheduled to be sworn-in as New Canaan's First Selectman and he said he is ready and eager to get started in his new role.

Mallozzi, who ran unopposed and was elected in the municipal contest held on Nov. 8, said that his election signaled a, "definite feeling that things need to change," in New Canaan given, "where the economy is going and where this town is going."

With that in mind, he said meeting with members will be his first priority.

Expressing gratitude to the current Board, Mallozzi said he plans to meet with each member to "see where they are." He said that whether current members whose terms are expiring remain, or if new members are appointed, he'd be looking for "people who are in tune with the public's way of thinking," about priorities and expenditures in town going forward.

Board of Finance members serve four-year terms and are appointed by the First Selectman and he or she Chairs the board as well. 

When asked about a time frame, Mallozzi said he expects to present names to the for approval within the first three weeks of taking office.

EXPERTS AGREE WITH ABRAMOWITZ, EMERT ON RESPONSIBLE SPENDING The Institute for Truth in Accounting says CT has lived beyond its means and is a “sinkhole state.” There are approximately 45 states which have lower total bonded indebtedness than CT. CT’S citizens carry a bond debt burden about 4 times the US national average per person. If the State’s paper loses value, is the Town’s next? Wall Street sometimes moves in lockstep and CT can withdraw help to affluent towns. Roy Abramowitz has been clear and vocal in his comments. Spend money where we need to and put off the nice-to’s for later. The BOF needs Roy Abramowitz. He can help John Emert and now Joe Paladino hold the line. No rubber stamps, Rob, please. No excessive spending, please. It’s not too late.
