Emergency meeting to be held following death of first selectman

Posted: Updated:

The town of Woodbridge will hold an emergency meeting after the sudden death of First Selectman Edward Sheehy earlier this week.

Municipal elections are set to be held in May.

The Secretary of the State's Office said the election will continue as planned, and Democrats will have until the day before the election to select another candidate.

The meeting will be held inside the Town Hall central meeting room, and will begin at 7 p.m.

Sheehy's funeral will be held Saturday at Our Lady of the Assumption Church followed by burial at Milfordside Cemetery.
