At our Summer BBQ, the Granby Dems honored Sally King’s 29 years of service on the Board of Selectmen. Sally has contributed in many ways to Granby — not only on the Board of Selectmen, but in multiple other volunteer roles. Sally is best known for her devotion to Granby and her gorgeous therapy dogs that are popular at the schools, airport and assisted living facilities. A BIG thank you to Sally for all she has done for Granby. 

Sally’s shoes will be hard to fill, but we think Peggy Chapple is up to the task. Peggy was formally sworn in and seated on the Board of Selectmen for her first meeting on August 1. Thank you, Peggy, for stepping up to the Board of Selectmen! Peggy was the most recent Vice Chair of the Planning and Zoning Commission. She held that seat for over 25 years and has served on numerous subcommittees.

Peggy’s seat on the Planning and Zoning Commission was filled by Matt Peters who had been the Alternate. Matt has served as Alternate for several years and is a great choice to take a permanent seat on P&Z as he is an active and passionate member, participating in and preparing for all meetings. 

With all of this good news, we are left with a vacant seat as Alternate to P&Z. If you are interested in serving as an Alternate on Planning and Zoning, please contact the Granby Dems at  We will be talking to interested candidates over the next several weeks. P&Z meets the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays every month. Information about P&Z can be found on the town website.
