WESTPORT, Conn. -- The Westport Daily Voice accepts signed letters to the editor. Send letters to email@example.com.
To The Editor:
I am writing this letter in support of the re-election of Brian Stern to the Westport Board of Finance. I supported Brian last time and will vote for him again.
Brian’s first four-year term was dominated by the financial stress of the Great Recession. During this time, Brian and the Democratic team managed to preserve our excellent education system, maintain town services, start reform on pensions and keep tax increases low.
In his next term Brian is committed to “Invest in Westport” while again keeping tax increases at historical low rates. He has been clear in his investment priorities, which are to preserve our excellent schools, improve the beach and Longshore Park, support the library, revitalize services for seniors and improve our downtown. These investments can realistically be achieved if we improve government efficiency, continue progress on pensions and benefits, and take advantage of low interest rates.
Brian is a seasoned business manager who is focused and listens well. He understands our great town and his record shows he has the ability to achieve results even in tough times.
Please join me in supporting Brian Stern in the November election.
