SEYMOUR >> A 2014 University of New Haven graduate, who interned for U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal and worked on state Rep. Theresa Conroy’s re-election campaign, wants to become Seymour’s next first selectman.
Zani Imetovski, 23, filed paperwork with the Town Clerk’s office prior to announcing his plans to run for the town’s top office Monday night at a meeting of the Democratic Town Committee.
“I want to run because I want to re-engage the community in how we govern town affairs,” Imetovski said. “All of our boards and commissions have a lot of experience, but where we are lacking is in fresh, new ideas. I want to work to make Seymour a place where I can someday watch my grandchildren grow up here like I did, and where I could someday retire with comfort.”
Imetovski wants to challenge incumbent Republican First Selectman Kurt Miller, who announced his plans to seek re-election to a third term earlier this year. Imetovski is seeking an official nomination from his party when the Democrats hold their annual caucus July 15.
