Candidate Question: What is an issue affecting the town that you care about most and want to make a priority? How will it guide your decision making?
As the current chairman of Town Council my foremost priority is to control municipal taxes and spending. In order for Monroe to remain competitive with our surrounding communities, the Town Council and First Selectman must continue to present fiscally responsible budgets that wisely invest in our infrastructure and community while limiting the tax burden on families, residents, and businesses.
Finding this critical balance will determine the future success of our community.
Driving private economic investment in Monroe is the key to sustaining Monroe’s excellent schools and tremendous town-wide programs and services.
I will continue to work with First Selectman Ken Kellogg and across all boards, commissions, and the Town Council to ensure that Monroe remains a wonderful community dedicated to fiscal discipline, appropriate investments in our roads and infrastructure, and forward-thinking decisions on capitol projects.
