After much drama, the GREENWICH, CT Representative Town Meeting finally brought SIRIUSXM HOWARD STERN Show Executive Producer GARY DELL'ABATE's nomination to the Board of Parks and Recreation to a vote MONDAY night, and "BABA BOOEY" was elected by close to a 2-to-1 margin. The GRENNWICH TIME reports that the RTM voted 119-64 to approve DELL'ABATE for the board.
DELL'ABATE's candidacy started with a unanimous endorsement by the town selectmen, but got bogged down in controversy when some members of the RTM criticized his participation in STERN's show. His harshest critic, COLINE JENKINS, a member of the Appointments Committee and a great-great-granddaughter of suffragette ELIZABETH CADY STANTON, said she received a bag of feces in her mailbox after STERN criticized her, and brought the bag to a meeting.
DELL'ABATE has been active in youth sports in GREENWICH, where his two sons play football at GRENNWICN HIGH SCHOOL. His confirmation came on his 50th birthday.
