Stonington's Bentz honored by General Assembly
Stonington -- The Republican Town Committee presented its chairman Bryan A. Bentz with a citation from the General Assembly on Thursday for his 20 years of service to the town.
State Sen. Heather Somers, R-18th District, was on hand to present the citation, which recognized Bentz for his 20 years as a member and chairman of the Board of Finance, serving as the Board of Finance's representative to the Mystic River Boathouse Park Implementation Committee and his membership on the Republican Town Committee, ending with four years as chairman.
Bentz was presented with a hand-engraved pewter “Points of the Compass” dish by Susette Tibus and Chuck Sneddon of Simply Majestic jewelry store on behalf of the town committee.
Bentz is stepping down from the town committee and did not seek reelection to the finance board last fall.
