To The Editor:
Running a town is a job that cannot be done well without solid management skills. Jim Marpe and Avi Kaner have each worked as business leaders for many years to develop those skills, and together they offer Westport a management team with a depth of experience that is rare in municipal government.
Both Jim and Avi take an approach to management that is both thoughtful and action-oriented, and they are impressive both individually and as a team. They know how to listen, build support for their ideas, and translate plans into action. They are doers, not talkers. Through their work on town boards -- Jim on the Board of Education and Avi on the Board of Finance – both have demonstrated their extraordinary ability to earn the trust and respect of others, build consensus, and get results.
Jim and Avi offer Westport a leadership team of the highest caliber. Westport would be very fortunate to benefit from their intelligence, experience, and commitment to public service. It’s my very great pleasure to endorse the Marpe/Kaner for Selectmen team.
