Today, Woodbridge First Selectman Ellen Scalettar announced changes in the Town’s administrative team.

The Board of Selectmen unanimously and enthusiastically named Tony Genovese, the town’s Finance Director, to also serve as the Town’s Administrative Officer. The Board of Selectmen also voted to hire an Assistant Administrative Officer, Betsy Yagla, who will focus on three areas: resident issues, special projects and communications. 

The Administrative Officer is a position required by town charter. The former Administrative Officer, Joe Hellauer, retired in January. He was responsible for managing the day-to-day operations of Town Hall and assisting in long-range planning and special projects.

“I would like to thank Joe Hellauer for his faithful and friendly service to the Town of Woodbridge,” said First Selectman Ellen Scalettar. “I would also like to congratulate Tony on his promotion, which capitalizes on his managerial skills and depth of knowledge accumulated during more than 12 years of service leading the Town’s finance department. Also, please join me in welcoming Betsy Yagla to Town government.”

The Town of Woodbridge’s administrative team also includes Executive Assistant Geraldine Shaw, who has worked for the Town in various capacities for 40 years and Senior Clerk Lynne Anglace who has worked for the Town for 20 years.
