Heather Smeriglio has announced her campaign kickoff for re-election to the position of Town of Greenwich Tax Collector. The kickoff event will be held at the St. Lawrence Society on May 1, 2021.
Heather began her career in the Office of the Tax Collector in 2013 as an account clerk, working directly with residents at the public counter. She learned all systems in the office and attended classes to become a Certified Connecticut Municipal Collector (CCMC). She has continued her education and networking through her membership in the Fairfield County Tax Collector’s Association and the Connecticut State Tax Collector’s Association. Heather is currently working toward her mandatory re-certification of her CCMC designation.
The past two years have presented obvious challenges with the threats presented by the Covid 19 pandemic. Systems had to be modified and fluid to protect both the general public and Town employees. Heather responded both measured and logically to protect all involved without any disruption in services to Town taxpayers. She also studied, lobbied for and implemented deferments provided in the governor’s executive orders without any disruption to anticipated revenues for the Town of Greenwich.
Heather had a long career in the local banking industry before shifting her career direction to become the first female and second CCMC Tax Collector in the Town of Greenwich history.
Heather and her husband John live in Cos Cob with their son, Jacob.
