First Selectman
Catherine Iino
The First Selectman is Killingworth's chief administrative officer, overseeing the day-to-day operation of the town, reviewing the current and future needs of the town and planning for their fulfillment, works on behalf of the town at the regional and state level, and ensuring that the town government complies with applicable laws and rules. The First Selectman serves as chairman of the Board of Selectmen, as police chief, and in other roles assigned by statute to the chief executive of the town.

I am happy to report that Killingworth is on an even keel, even though the economic waters are choppy at best. Because we have such terrific, dedicated townspeople — economists would call them "human capital" we are able to keep moving forward on projects that will make our community even stronger, without increasing our town budget. If you are already active in one of these efforts, from the Killingworth Volunteer Fire Company or the community gardens at Parmelee Farm, not to mention the town's many boards or commissions, many thanks. If you are not, I urge you to get involved. We make a great team.
