Ledyard - The Town Council held its first meeting with one new member Wednesday, wrapping up the year with the official request for next year's budget and the cancellation of its next meeting, originally scheduled for Christmas day.

The councilors were sworn in last Monday, re-electing Linda Davis as their chairman.

The new slate of councilors consists of six Republicans, all re-elected - Mike France, Kevin Dombrowski, Steve Eichelberg, Fred Allyn III, John Marshall and Linda Davis - and three Democrats. Bill Saums and Mary McGrattan both kept their seats, and former Ledyard High School Principal Louis Gabordi became the only new face on the council. Longtime Democratic councilor Sharon Wadecki was the only one to lose her seat.

Eichelberg will serve as chairman of the Administration Committee, France will lead the Finance Committee, and Dombrowski will be chairman of both the Land Use/Planning/Public Works Committee and the Information Technology Committee.

Gabordi was appointed to the Information Technology Committee and will serve as the council's liaison to the Board of Education, as well as to the Ledyard Town Center Committee jointly with Dombrowski.
