“As a Town Board member, I’ll bring knowledge of both engineering and business management to Charlton’s government. I’ll help the town to communicate the technical and factual basis for its decisions and to open its budgeting and other decisions to wider input from town residents.
“I want to make the Town government more open to the citizens and allow them to have a say or discussion. I’d like to have a citizen team to bounce ideas off of and have input. I want to cut waste and put more thought into decisions and plans, and to put some technical expertise into Charlton’s future.”
