Fred Camillo, Greenwich’s newly elected First Selectman, will share his vision for the town’s future as RMA’s featured speaker on February 26, 2020 at 11:00am at First Presbyterian Church, Lafayette Place, Greenwich.
Greenwich is blessed with a beautiful landscape, wonderful amenities, convenient location, and proximity to New York City. It has an educated citizenry, and a civic spirit that is second to none. With all that going for it, the town, like every other municipality, faces challenges of the modern era and some that are unique to Greenwich. Some public properties are underutilized, while others need to be repurposed. There are assets that need replacement and operations that need new models. We are at a crossroads. Tapping into the talent, and civic spirit of the town’s residents can help us make one of the greatest towns in America an even better place
