The name of Fairfield's new chief of staff may ring a bell. 

During his more than 40 years as a resident, Thomas Dubrosky has been involved in youth athletics, local veterans organizations, and town government.

Dubrosky assumed the role of Chief of Staff in the First Selectman's Office in January. The position pays $90,000, and was last held by Rober Mayer, who is now the town's Chief Fiscal Officer.

In making the announcement, First Selectman Michael Tetreau said:

“The Chief of Staff plays an instrumental role in the First Selectman’s Office and contributes to the success of our town. I am very pleased to welcome Mr. Dubrosky to this critical role. Tom brings the right mix of a strong managerial background coupled with a deep understanding of our community that will further strengthen the needs of our Town and will also help the First Selectman’s Office continue to provide quality service to our citizens.”

Dubrosky spent 42 years in the pharmaceutical industry; 37 of those years with the multi-national Boehringer Ingelheim Corp., in Ridgefield. He was the first representative for Boehringer when it established itself in Connecticut. He has experience in sales, sales management, marketing, trade distribution and training, according to a press release from the First Selectman's Office. 

A Vietnam veteran, Dubrosky is an officer for the Fairfield County VFW, Commander of the VFW Post No. 399 in Westport and a member of American Legion Post No. 74 in Fairfield.

He is a past member of the Representative Town Meeting (RTM) from District 1. During his three consecutive terms on the RTM, he served on the Public Works Committee and its Public Health and Safety Committee. 

While on the RTM — the town's legislative board comprised of elected representatives — Dubrosky helped lead an initiative to enact the Town’s first blight ordinance, the press release states.

Most recently, Dubrosky served as a member and chair of the Fairfield Police Commission.  

He has also been a coach and athletic director for Fairfield Pop Warner. He is a member of and altar server at St. Anthony of Padua Church. He has two daughters and four grandchildren who live in Fairfield.

I can understand a President, a Governor, and even a mayor of a major city, but does a First Selectman of a town of about 60,000 residents even need a Chief of Staff? Not intending to be snarky; I'm asking a legit question.

Another bad example of how Fairfield likes to spend our hard earned tax dollars.Every one of us "ordinary citizens" is learning and adopting to doing more with less.Not so with the folks who run the town.

Wow, I'm so impressed by every bit of that resume and then I get to the bit about the blight ordinance. It's hard to give him the benefit of the doubt. He's bringing his experience of escalating neighborhood feuds into government sponsored neighborhood feuding and applying that to managing town employees that already have a problem of an abusive attitude towards its citizens. This really seems like the wrong direction.
