FAIRFIELD, Conn. — First Selectman Michael Tetreau called on Democrats and Republicans to put the election behind them and come together to work on making Fairfield “the best value in Connecticut,” during the town’s Oath of Office Ceremony on Monday night at Fairfield Warde High School.
“We’re all on the same team, the Fairfield team,” said the Democrat, who was sworn in for a second term by U.S. District Judge Stefan Underhill.
After being sworn in herself by Judge Daniel Caruso, Town Clerk Elizabeth Browne swore in members of the Board of Finance, Board of Education, Board of Assessment Appeals, Town Plan & Zoning Commission, Zoning Board of Appeals, Constables and the 40 members of the Representative Town Meeting.
Caruso also administered the oath Selectman Laurie McArdle (R), and former State Rep. Cathy Tymniak did the honors for her son, Selectman Christopher Tymniak (R).
In a brief speech, Tetreau said he was proud of the work done during his first term to move the town forward by controlling taxes, providing high-quality education and growing the economy. He said he looks forward to working with the new team to support seniors, the library, infrastructure and other issues over the next four years.
The Fairfield Warde High School Jazz Ensemble and Fairfield Ludlow High School’s Close Harmony performed at the ceremony and Riverfield Boy Scout Pack 99 helped members of the police and fire departments with the honor guard. Holland Hill Girl Scout Troop 33217 led the Pledge of Allegiance.
