Greenwich Citizen became the second town paper to endorse Peter Tesei for First Selectman. Citing Tesei's years of service in the Representative Town Meeting (RTM), the Board of Estimate and Taxation (BET), and in the financial arena, the paper stated that his skills will "help to keep Greenwich on an even fiscal keel." It pointed out that "under his leadership as BET chairman, the Town has the lowest property tax rate in Connecticut, with modest annual increases in the 3.4 percent range."
The paper also took notice of Tesei's "cool head" and "ability to build consensus" - attributes that it believes are of "inestimable value leading a municipal government." In contrast, Tesei's opponent, Frank Farricker, was described as "strident on occasion" and "a bit too argumentative".
The paper said it believes Farricker has "overstated some of the problems facing the Town."
