Two vacancies in District 7

As fall approaches, along with it comes election season and District7/North Center of the Greenwich Representative Town Meeting (RTM) has vacancies for the two-year term that begins in January 2014.

Candidates must be registered voters and residents of District 7 to qualify and are required to file a petition with the town clerk’s office by Sept. 16. The petition can be found on the town RTM website at rtm.greenwich.org under the heading RTM Petition and Directions.

The election will take place on Nov. 5.

District 7 encompasses the area from the Post Road north to Pecksland Road and includes the Rock Ridge neighborhood and the south part of Lake Avenue. It reaches east to Old Church Road and west to Glenville Road. The polling place for District 7 residents is Greenwich High School.

The RTM, which meets monthly from September through June, is the town’s legislative body. Members run and serve on a non-partisan basis and are elected by the voters in each of the town’s 12 voting districts. The 230-member body of the RTM votes on the funding of town projects and departments.
