Westport’s Board of Selectmen last week picked Antone Vieira Jr. to serve as the board’s new chairman.
The vote, at Tuesday’s reorganizational meeting, was unanimous (Mr. Vieira was the only nominee).
Mr. Vieira was nominated by Richard Spirlet who has been serving as the board’s chairman for the past two years. He, in turn, was named vice chairman, also by unanimous vote. Selectman R. Michael Sullivan was unanimously selected to serve again as the board’s clerk.
Later in the meeting, the board quickly approved the warrant for the May 7 town meeting and agreed to a 10-year cable contract with Charter Communications.
