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?
From my perspective as the current chairperson of the Board of Finance, the most important issue facing the town and specifically the Board of Finance is maintaining the strong financial position of the town and simultaneously providing the funding to allow us to deliver the high level of services that the townspeople expect.
Education, Safety, and recreation are all important to have an exceptional community and at the same time we must keep the Mill Rate at rate where people can afford to live in a great community like Monroe.
