Stamford’s new mayor has put out the “help wanted” sign, seeking volunteers to serve the city on 23 commissions and boards that span photography to shellfish to golf and beyond.
Mayor David Martin is seeking applications from residents interested in being appointed to one of Stamford’s volunteer boards and commissions. Martine, aided by his transition team, will be reaching out to residents and sharing information about the boards and commissions and how those interested can serve.

The application is available for download on the mayor’s city web page, MartinTransition.com, or at the mayor’s office at 888 Washington Blvd. or by calling (203) 977-4150.
