Groton Has a New Mayor, a Democrat

Rita M. Schmidt was elected Mayor Tuesday night

Groton has a new mayor. And she’s a Democrat. 

According to a report in The Day, the newly sworn-in Groton Town Council is Democratically controlled, the first time in three decades. And following the swearing in, Democrat Rita M. Schmidt was elected mayor in an unanimous vote, The Day reported.

As reported by Patch, Democrats wrested control of the Town Council from Republicans in the November election. 

Five Democrats and four Republicans make up the council, previously controlled by the GOP. The Town Council members are Democrats Schmidt, Rich Moravsik, Genevieve Cerf Bob Frink and Joe de la Cruz and Republicans Heather Bond Somers, Harry A. Watson, Deborah L. Peruzzotti and Bruce  Flax.
