He said in a written statement that for 28 years his family has been by his side during a marvelous era in their lives. Before becoming First Selectman, Vavrek served as a member of the Parks and Rec Commission , the Town Council, Board of Finance, the Republican Town Committee and various community organizations. Vavrek says much has changed in the town, region, state, country and world over the last three decades and fresh ideas must be developed and listened to.
