Longtime Republican member elected to lead Greenwich finance board

GREENWICH — The town’s powerful finance board elected a new chair Monday night, but he did not have the full backing of his own party.

Harry Fisher, a Republican, was elected as chair of the Board of Estimate and Taxation by a vote of 8 to 4, with most of his party voting for another nominee.

“I look forward to working with everybody,” he said after the vote. “I hope we can have a successful time and I look for great success for the town. It’s my primary interest.”

Republican Karen Fassuliotis nominated Fisher for the position.

“He’s committed to building bipartisan consensus on our board while maintaining core fiscal values that have kept Greenwich the best place to live, raise a family, work and retire,” she said.

The 12-member board is split evenly between Republicans and Democrats and all six Democrats supported Fisher. Republicans got to nominate candidates from their party for BET chair after winning more votes than Democrats during the November election.
