Board of Selectmen

The Board of Selectmen is the executive arm of our town government which is common for small New England towns.

The administration of the day-to-day affairs of Cornwall is led by the First Selectman, Gordon Ridgway, with policy set by the three-member Board of Selectmen comprised of Mr. Ridgway and Selectmen Janet Carlson ’21, and Priscilla Pavel. The Board of Selectmen also appoint members to all non-elected commissions and committees in the Town.
