The Greenwich Board of Selectmen will be sworn in for new terms Nov. 29 in a special 4 p.m. ceremony at Town Hall.

First Selectman Peter Tesei and Selectmen John Toner and Drew Marzullo will take formal oath as leaders of Greenwich. Tesei was overwhelmingly returned to a fifth term as first selectman, taking home 75 percent of the vote on election day.

Toner and Marzullo, both incumbents, garnered the second and third highest vote totals. All three men were elected to new two-year terms.

Each of the three selectmen take the oath of office given by a person of their choice. Tesei will be sworn in by former First Selectman Rebecca Breed, who is one of his political mentors.

Marzullo, who was elected to a fourth term, will be sworn in by state Supreme Court Justice Andrew McDonald, a longtime friend. McDonald, a former state senator from Stamford, is the first openly gay justice on the state court. Marzullo is the first openly gay member of the Board of Selectmen.

Toner will be serving his first full term on the board. He was appointed in January to fill the remainder of the late Selectman David Theis’ term. He will be sworn in by longtime Town Clerk Carmella Budkins, who was also elected to a brand new term last week.

State Rep. Livvy Floren (R-149th) will serve as the master of ceremonies.

Family, friends and supporters of the selectmen are expected to turn out for the event; members of the public are invited to attend.
