Members of TEAM Westport live and/or work in Westport or Weston. Members are appointed by Westport's First Selectman (mayor).
“TEAM” stands for “Together Effectively Achieving Multiculturalism.” As volunteers, we believe there are important benefits to our children, ourselves, our neighbors and our towns in doing so.
To undertake its activities, TEAM Westport operates Education, Governance, Marketing, Outreach and Program Committees.
Diane Goss Farrell, then the First Selectwoman of Westport, sponsored the creation of TEAM Westport in 2003 with a small group of Westport volunteers. Westport’s traditional ties with neighboring Weston quickly added volunteers from Weston with the sponsorship of Weston First Selectman Woody Bliss.
In 2005, TEAM Westport was named an official committee of the Town of Westport by
Current First Selectman Jim Marpe and Selectwoman Jennifer Tooker are members of TEAM Westport.
