Rutigliano to run for selectman
Shrewsbury - Christopher P. Rutigliano Sr. has announced that he will run for a seat on the Board of Selectmen in the Town Election Tuesday May 6.
Rutigliano, 45, of 23 Carter Road, is the first challenger to announce a run for selectman. He is vice president of MicroTech Associates, a networking consulting firm based in Shrewsbury, and a member of the Corridor Nine Area Chamber of Commerce. He has been married for 20 years and has three children in the Shrewsbury Public School system.
He has served on the Fiscal Study Committee and has been a Town Meeting member for the last seven years. He was president of Shrewsbury Youth Hockey for two years as well as on the Board of Directors, and he coached for seven years. In addition, he has volunteered in the schools and is parent manager for his daughters' soccer teams.
He is an active supporter of the Kyle P. Johnson Memorial Foundation and Bobby's Bull Pen-UMass Memorial Foundation. He is a member of the National Alumni Association for Spring Hill College, Mobile, Ala., and a parishioner of St. Anne's Church in Shrewsbury. He recently helped orchestrate a fund drive with the homeowners of Winchester Estates, in which they raised $1,300 for the Shrewsbury Police Department to support its new police dog, Buzzy.
"I decided to run for selectman based on encouragement from neighbors and friends in Shrewsbury," Rutigliano said. "I come without a political agenda and will work with the best interests of the taxpayer in mind. I have a strong attachment to our great town. My family and I get involved in the community as much as we can."
