District 9 looks for RTM volunteers


RTM District 9 will be filling openings at their District meeting on Thursday, Sept. 15 at the Bendheim Western Greenwich Civic Center at 7:30 p.m. District 9 encompasses the area from the Merrit to King Street to central Glenville to Bailiwick to Pemberwick and Lyon Farm West.

The RTM is an outgrowth of the old New England Town Meeting. Started in 1664, the Greenwich Town meeting was changed to a Representative Town Meeting in 1933. They are now 230 members elected every two years. They are the legislative body of the town. They initiate and pass ordinances, and review and approve the town budget. They vote on nominations to town boards and commissions, and form committees to study critical issues and much more.

If you want to learn how town government works and have a say, join the RTM.

Please contact the chair of District 9, Betsey Frumin at 203-531-7203 or email Betsey@nacca.com for more information about the District 9 openings.
