Not Nominated: Registrar and Deputy Resign

The Norwich Day: Norwich Democratic registrar and deputy resign <read>

Democratic Registrar of Voters Nancy DePietro and her deputy, Carol Cieslukowski, submitted their resignations today, effective immediately.

DePietro, who has served in the post uncontested for 10 years, was not endorsed for re-election during a Democratic Town Committee caucus in May. The party endorsed political newcomer Joann Merolla-Martin, 52, a tax consultant.

DePietro could not be reached immediately for comment.

Cieslukowski, who has served as deputy since last fall, said she resigned for “personal reasons.” She said she was not sure if she would have stayed on if DePietro had not resigned.

Each submitted separate brief letters of resignation to the city clerk’s office today.

“I am resigning from the office of Democratic Registrar; it has been my pleasure to serve the community of Norwich for the past 10 years,” DePietro’s one-sentence letter said.
