At the Connecticut Town Clerk Association’s Annual Meeting in late September, Woodbridge Town Clerk Stephanie Ciarleglio was named 2015 Town Clerk of the Year. Deputy First Selectman Beth Heller attended the Association’s annual meeting to present Ciarleglio with a proclamation from the Woodbridge First Selectman. It read, in part, “I Ellen Scalettar, First Selectman of the Town of Woodbridge, and on behalf of the Board of Selectmen and the many grateful citizens and visitors she has assisted over the years with professionalism, kindness and understanding, am honored to congratulate our Town Clerk Stephanie Ciarleglio on this occasion as she is recognized by her peers and awarded the honor of Town Clerk of the Year by the Connecticut Town Clerks Association”.
Ciarleglio was honored for providing an open, warm, and accessible office to residents, the restoration and preservation of historic Town records, spearheading the publication of the “Historic Woodbridge Homes” book, decorating Town Hall walls with photographs of historic Woodbridge and serving as a mentor to other Town Clerks, as well as many other accomplishments.
In 1991 Ciarleglio was appointed as Town Clerk by then-First Selectman Nan Birdwhistell. She has been subsequently reappointed by First Selectmen Roger Harrison, Amey Marrella, Edward Sheehy and Ellen Scalettar.
