Jim Campbell secured a third term as leader of Greenwich's majority political party Wednesday night, beating out former RTM member Randall Smith in the race for the chairmanship of the Republican Town Committee.
Campbell, the executive committee's endorsed pick, won by a vote of 38-22.
"Our town must choose leaders that prioritize harmony, and Jim does that," Mike Mason, chairman of the Board of Estimate and Taxation, said in his nominating speech.
In a letter of nomination read by Selectman Dave Theis, First Selectman Peter Tesei, who was unable to attend the election, praised Campbell for his intelligence and leadership skills.
"Under Jim's leadership, our party has thrived," Tesei wrote, adding, "We are fortunate to have someone of Jim's caliber serving as our chairman."

The annual Prescott Bush Dinner will be held at the Stamford Hilton (right off Exit 7) on Thursday evening April 10th.
It will be a big night for Greenwich. The keynote speaker is former Florida Governor Jeb Bush – one of our party’s leading spokesmen, and at the top of most polls of possible GOP Presidential contenders for 2016. He is also, of course, a Bush, with that family’s historic ties to Greenwich.
The State Party’s highest award, the Prescott Bush award, will be going to Greenwich’s own Linda McMahon, twice our GOP nominee for U.S. Senate. And to complete the Greenwich theme, State Central Committee member and former RTC Chairman Ed Dadakis will receive the Pat Futner award, bestowed annually to recognize outstanding work amongst the grass roots of the party.
Please show your support for our State Party, and for our Greenwich honorees, by making this the year to attend. Please find attached an invitation and a link to the web site to respond electronically. Please note on your response that you want to sit at a Greenwich table, and when you purchase your ticket, please also be sure to let me or Ed Dadakis know by email that you are coming.
April 10 will be a great night for the Republican Party in Connecticut and for Greenwich Republicans. I look forward to seeing you there.

Welcome to the website of the Greenwich Republican Town Committee. As Republican Party Chairman, I urge you to use this site to learn more about both the RTC and Greenwich's town government. I also urge you to join us as we continue the long-standing Republican tradition of providing prudent, efficient and effective government in Town.
Greenwich has been blessed over the years to have a local government characterized by very competent elected officials, and an extensive volunteer involvement in Town affairs by so many of our talented and energetic citizens who have generously devoted countless hours to making the town a better place in which to live and raise a family.
We would welcome your support and involvement as well. Please reach out to our elected Republican officials, or to me, if you have any questions or require any assistance.
Jim Campbell, Chairman
