On Friday afternoon, Selectman Drew Marzullo, the lone Democrat on the trio that comprise the Board of Selectmen, announced that he will run for re-election in November.

In a letter to the Democratic Town Committee, Mr. Marzullo wrote:

It is with great respect and humility that I ask for your nomination to run for a fourth term as Selectman. Over the past six years, I have cherished my role as a leader in the Greenwich Democratic Party, and I would be honored to represent you for another term. I once again respectfully ask for your support and vote. As Selectman, I have worked to further the mission and ideals of the Democratic Party: education, environment, social justice, and improving the quality of life of all Greenwich citizens.

I feel that I am uniquely qualified to negotiate with our Republican leaders while not compromising on the spirit of the Democratic platform. While we may be the minority party, I truly believe our strong convictions and loud voice add tremendous value to Greenwich as a whole. I truly believe that we Democrats have made a difference in the lives of so many who live work and visit our great town. I hope you would agree that even when I got it wrong (or even failed), it was not without trying or learning for the future.

Some of the more recent initiatives that I am most proud to support include a state-of-the-art educational facility at New Lebanon, a proactive town-wide soil cleanup plan, the rehabilitation of Armstrong Court and, of course, a soon-to-be-built town-wide pool located in Byram. I am deeply committed to seeing these projects through to their completion, as well as tackling new infrastructure and policy challenges to better serve the Greenwich residents in their daily lives. I will continue to lend my voice and advocate for public safety issues, traffic calming and responsible financial borrowing.

If you allow me the privilege of running for an additional term, I promise to faithfully serve as your representative to the Board of Selectman as well as act as your democratic voice inside Town Hall. Our tent is a big one full of great people with different opinions and different points of view. That’s what make us stronger: not weaker, not any less Democratic, but stronger. I look forward to our tent growing even bigger.

Many thanks for your consideration.
