Marzullo has become a ‘gem’ on the board and in the community

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

Four years ago, Drew Marzullo, a political “diamond in the rough,” was elected as our Democratic selectman.

A quirky election propelled Drew into the spotlight and he rounded out the Board of Selectmen with Republicans Peter Tesei and David Theis. But what a “gem” Drew has become. No pun intended, since Drew also serves the community as a member of the Greenwich Emergency Medical Services (GEMS).

Drew literally saves lives as a first responder and during his “time off” he has improved the quality of all our lives in Greenwich on the Board of Selectmen.

Drew organized a successful fund-raiser for an Alzheimer’s garden at the town owned Nathaniel Witherell nursing facility featuring celebrity resident Regis Philbin as the prize. Drew championed approval for the long overdue Project Renew to rehabilitate and upgrade the Witherell. And Drew continues to raise money for AIDS research.

Not only does Drew serve in Greenwich, he was appointed by Gov. Malloy to serve on a statewide committee/board focused on providing emergency medical services because of his dedication, expertise and experience.

As a member of the Cos Cob Fire Police Patrol, I have seen Drew “on scene” compassionately and expertly serving the community during emergencies.

Drew has earned another term on the Board of Selectmen. He brings all of his experience to bear in serving the town, particularly with all of the emergency situations we have faced (storms, floods, etc.) over the past four years.

Drew is liked and works extremely well with his Republican colleagues on the Board of Selectmen and our state Republican delegation. This quality is rare and enables the voice of the loyal opposition (when conscience dictates) to be heard, compromise to be struck and enables things to get done so that the people of Greenwich are served.

Drew Marzullo, once arguably a diamond in the rough, has been honed by time and experience into a shining example of a leader and a “gem” of a public servant. We need to endorse him for a third term.

And, on a personal note, thank you Drew for all you do.
