The Weston RTC elected Bob Ferguson as its new Chairman on March 8th for a two-year term. Bob is a life-long Republican who joined the RTC in 2014. He served as Campaign Chair for the last two elections, including the 2015 campaign which took back the First Selectman seat with the election of Nina Daniel. Bob spent his 25-year career in finance, most recently as Managing Director with Barclays. He is also an active member of Weston Kiwanis and St. Francis of Assisi.
“I am excited to step into the role of RTC chair and build on the success that Britta Lerner built over the past six years, Bob said. “I will continue to fight for strong conservative values and encourage fiscal responsibility for Weston, while retaining the unique characteristics of our town. We are committed to furthering the success of Republican candidates in Weston and throughout the state.”
