Fairfield, CT – Unofficial results from today’s GOP Caucus are in, showing Robert Bellitto, Jr., Fairfield’s Board of Finance Vice Chairman, has captured the Republican nomination to run for First Selectman in the November elections.

Approximately ten percent of Fairfield’s registered Republican voters visited the polls Tuesday to choose nominees for the positions of First Selectman, Selectman, Town Clerk, Board of Finance, Board of Education, Board of Assessment Appeals and other key offices.
