Town Crier

WILMINGTON — The Board of Selectmen has unanimously elected Greg Bendel as chairman for the coming year. Bendel was nominated by incumbent Chairman Kevin Cai­ra. Bendel and Caira both won reelection to the board in last month’s town elections.

Traditionally, the board reorganizes annually after Town Meeting and elections have concluded.

Caira thanked the board for his time serving as chair.

“It has been an honor and a privilege to serve as chairman for the past year,” Caira said. “I want to thank my colleagues for allowing me to serve the town in this position.”

Bendel expressed gratitude toward the board for being given the role.

“Thank you Mr. Caira… I appreciate your service for the past year,” said Bendel. “I appreciate my colleague’s vote of confidence and I promise to do the best I can for the residents and for my colleagues up here.”
