PLEASE JOIN US for:
Town Hall with Wilton Town Administrator Matt Knickerbocker
Thursday March 30 (7-8:30pm)
at the Wilton Library Brubeck Room
Join Town Administrator Matt Knickerbocker in an open Town Hall forum. The Town Administrator role is new to our town governance system, and Matt is the first person ever to serve in this capacity. He began the job in September 2022, so this Town Hall at the six-month mark will be a great opportunity for him to read out his early on-the-job insights. He'll speak about his work in implementing the mission of streamlining Town operations and finding new efficiencies, as outlined by the First Selectwoman and Board of Selectmen when the position of Town Administrator was created. He will also briefly touch on the history of our classic New England “town meeting” form of government and the highly interconnected functions that exist between public, private and civic organizations that help it function successfully.
Prior to coming to Wilton, Knickerbocker was First Selectman in Bethel, CT, for 13 years. During that time, he worked closely with Lynn Vanderslice on various municipal and regional projects as part of WestCOG (Western CT Council of Governments). He was also a member of the Bethel Board of Education for ten years, serving seven years as chairman, when he oversaw renovation of two school buildings and comprehensive curriculum revamp.
