WESTPORT, Conn. -- The Westport Daily Voice accepts signed letters to the editor. Send letters to westport@dailyvoice.com .

To the Editor:

Westport has many remarkable people willing to serve in public office. Even in this context, Jennifer Tooker is unique. Her current service on the BOE means that she will bring to the Board of Finance knowledge of our schools’ budget and needs that is unprecedented.

At a time when some elected officials can only think about the next day or week, Jennifer’s entire career in finance has demonstrated her ability to keep focus on long term goals while addressing short term pressures.

Jennifer’s most recent professional experience directing communications for Gen Re in the esoteric world of reinsurance will significantly improve the Board of Finance’s ability to communicate clearly and succinctly with our residents about our town’s finances.

I have come to know Jennifer’s judgment, maturity and diligence well over the last few years of our work together on town Boards. Please join me in voting for Jennifer Tooker for Board of Finance on Nov. 5. Let’s not pass up this unique opportunity for Westport.
