Board of Selectpeople

The Board of Selectpeople is responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operations of the town and ensuring the town meets its financial obligations and goals – within the limits of the budget approved by the residents each May at the town meeting.  The Board of Selectpeople is responsible for preparing the annual budget for the Board of Finance to review and ultimately present to residents for approval.  The Board of Selectpeople also has the power to appoint residents to fill vacancies on most other town boards and commissions, should they become available between election cycles.

The residents of Lyme elect the three members of the Board of Selectpeople, who then serve for two-year terms. The current board members are:

  • David Lahm, Republican – First Selectman
    (Term expiration: November 21, 2023)
  • John Kiker, Democrat – Selectman
    (Term expiration: November 21, 2023)
  • Kristina White, Democrat – Selectwoman
    (Term expiration: November 21, 2023)

Typically, the Board of Selectpeople meets the first and third Monday of each month at 3:30 p.m. at the Lyme Town Hall.
