Old Lyme - The Democratic Town Committee voted Monday to nominate incumbent Bonnie Reemsnyder for first selectwoman.
Reemsnyder, a Democrat, was elected to her first term as first selectwoman in 2011 and had served previously on the Board of Selectmen.
Reemsnyder told the nominating committee that "it's been an incredible almost two years" in office and she was pleased with the progress of long-discussed projects, such as the Rogers Lake Dam and the Sound View enhancement project.
"It's good to see things happening in Old Lyme, and that's thanks to a lot of people in this room who are working together," she said. Reemsynder added after the meeting that in a next term she would look forward to continuing projects - such as the community wastewater feasibility study - and was also always excited to hear new ideas.
The Democrats also endorsed incumbent Mary Jo Nosal for the Board of Selectmen.
"I so appreciate your vote of confidence over the last two years," she said. "I look forward to serving the town we so love for another two years."
The committee nominated Gil Soucie for the Zoning Commission; Mary Stone for the Zoning Board of Appeals; Edgar Butcher for the Planning Commission; George Finley for the Board of Assessment Appeals; and Bennett Bernblum as an alternate on the Board of Finance.
The committee nominated Diane Linderman, Sarah Smalley, Jean Wilczynski, Rick Goulding and Nancy Lucas Edson for seats on the Board of Education.
