The Democratic Town Committee and the Republican Town Committee both held caucuses last week to endorse members to their respective bodies.

The endorsed members in each party will begin two-year terms in March. Both parties will also hold officer elections in March.

RTC Chairman Bob Zappi, who has served in that position since 2007, told the Westport News he will seek another term as chairman. DTC Chairman Jim Ezzes, who has served in that position since 2008, said he has been "encouraged by a significant number" of DTC members to continue to lead the committee.

The DTC endorsed 61 candidates during its Jan. 14 caucus for 70 available member seats on the committee. The RTC endorsed 33 candidates for 40 available seats. Another 16 Republicans, who are elected officials, also serve as ex-officio members of the RTC.
