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.
