Greenwich Republican Town Committee leader Jim Campbell announced on Thursday that he will step down. Campbell emailed RTC members to say,
“I am writing to you today to thank you for your support over the last six years as Chairman of the Greenwich RTC, and to inform you that I will not be seeking a fourth term as Chairman when the RTC convenes for that purpose in March. At the caucus next Monday, I will not seek a seat on the new RTC that will be endorsed that evening.
It has been a privilege to serve as your Chairman for three terms. Together over the past six years you and I have seen Republican candidates win every municipal office we as Republicans could win in Greenwich — a record of consecutive success not matched for many years. We have also continued for the past three election cycles a century-old tradition of electing only Republicans to represent Greenwich in the General Assembly. It was not always easy, but it is a record of accomplishment that all of us can be proud of.
I look forward to the continued success of the Greenwich Republican Party in 2016 and for many years to come, and I thank you again for giving me the opportunity to serve.”
DTC Chair Frank Farricker also recently announced he would be stepping down. Mr. Farricker, who list in a landslide against incumbent Republican Peter Tesei at the last municipal election has served three terms at the helm of the DTC.
