Long history of serving the Town of Stonington and my experience in Banking. Have served as Treasurer for several not-for-profits.
What is the most pressing local issue facing your community and how would you solve it (within the capacity of the office for which you are running)?
Lack of funding from the State. Assist Board of Finance in finding alternative streams of income.
With the state's ongoing budget crisis looming over the election, what are your plans for your community's budget? Is there anything you can do make your town less dependent on revenue from the state?
Higher taxes is not the answer. Must work with Economic Development to add to the tax base for the Town.
The legislature has been debating various ideas to allow towns to raise revenue locally through something other than property taxes. If you could ease your residents' property tax burden by adding another method of taxation, is there anything you might consider for your town?
Not at this time.
Are you in favor of regionalizing more services in conjunction with other nearby communities? If so, which ones?
Should your school district get the same amount of education funding from the state if your district's enrollment is dropping?
No. Stonington is one of the few towns with an increase in population.
What's one thing most people don't know about you?
Worked my way through college by working for a bank and attending college at night. Steady progress through a 36 year career in banking ending as a Vice President in Commercial Lending.
