“Drew is unbelievably strong, he’s going to be a very strong leader for the next two years for the town and for the party,” said Chairman Frank Farricker.
Democratic candidate Drew Marzullo wins re-election as Selectman for the town of Greenwich.
“I’m feeling great,” said Marzullo. “There’s always mixed emotion being a Democrat in Greenwich, CT because with wins there’s inevitably losses.”
Beth Krumeich, who joined the race as Democratic candidate for First Selectman in September, thanked her supporters for the opportunities throughout the campaign.
“It is an amazing experience to step up and to ask people to vote for you to learn about the issues that are important to the community, to bring them out there,” said Krumeich. “We’re going to keep building on the base that we’ve established in this race. We’ve tried to keep it to the issues and I feel very proud to the way all of us worked hard to focus on the issues that are important to our community.”
But the democrats did have something to be excited about in the elections of Debbie Applebaum and Laura Erickson to the Board of Education.
“We had a very school board centric year,” said Farricker.
“I really appreciate the confidence of the voters of Greenwich for electing me,” said Applebaum. “I look forward to hitting the ground as fast as possible to tackle the issues on the Board of Ed.”
Although the Republicans took the win across the board, the Democrats are still hopeful for the town of Greenwich.
“There’s no question that this party is going to fight every single day for what we believe, we are very united in what it is that we believe, and how we want this town to run,” said Farricker. “We also know that at the end of the day, it’s all about the town.
