Republican challenges for tax collector
GREENWICH — Greenwich’s newest candidate for public office is not only looking to take over a department she once worked in, she’s looking to make some history as well.
Heather Smeriglio is stepping forward as a Republican candidate for town tax collector. If elected, she would be the first female tax collector in the town’s history.
It is a department she knows well. After 33 years in the banking industry, she went to work for the town in 2013 and spent four years in the Tax Collector’s Office.
“I’m not a politician but I love this town,” Smeriglio said Tuesday. “I was born and raised here. I grew up in Byram and I have the desire to serve my town and serve the people in it.”
