Easton Board of Selectmen appoints new member

June 3, 2018 GMT

EASTON — The Easton Board of Selectmen appointed a new member to the board at a special meeting Friday to fill a vacant seat.

Kristi Sogofsky fills the seat recently vacated by Carrie Colangelo, who resigned because of her appointment as a worker’s compensation commissioner for the state of Connecticut. In that position, Colangelo is unable to hold elected office.

“I’m grateful and honored to be appointed and to have the opportunity to take a greater role in serving my community,” Sogofsky said.

Sogofsky, a mother of two, is active in town, serving as vice president of the Easton PTA for Samuel Staples Elementary School and chairman of the Easton Public Library Board of Trustees and the Easton Library Building Committee.

“I couldn’t be more pleased to have Kristi as a selectman,” said First Selectman Adam Dunsby. “She has proven herself to be an engaged member of our community and she brings a broad spectrum of knowledge and experience to the board.”

Selectman Bob Lessler said he looks forward to working with Sogofsky.
