HISTORIC DEMOCRATIC WIN AND MANY FIRSTS IN EASTON, CONNECTICUT
November 8, 2019
Easton, CT — David Bindelglass, an orthopedic surgeon from Easton, Connecticut, has been elected as the Town’s first Democratic First Selectman in 36 years. Along with Selectman Bob Lessler, who was re-elected to his eleventh term as Selectman, they will form the first Democratic majority on the town Board since 2003. Bindelglass and Lessler will be joined by Kristi Sogofsky, who was elected to her first full term on the board. The election is also historic because it is the first time since 1983 that Easton has elected a Democratic First Selectman as well as a Democratic majority to the three member board.
“I’m proud to lead the Town of Easton with a Democratic majority,” Bindelglass said today. “We will work hard for all the people of Easton in maintaining our excellent school system, protecting our open spaces, and seeking new sources of revenue. It’s time for Easton to plan for the future with energy, innovation, and an open, responsive government.”
Bindelglass, 60, specializes in hip and knee replacements and has been doing them for the last 27 years at Orthopedic Specialty Group, where he also manages the practice as a member of the Executive Committee. He has a long history of involvement in the town, coaching soccer for years and serving on the Easton Board of Education since 2015. David and his wife, Gloria, are 25-year Easton residents.
