In Support of Don and Ashleigh:Very involved and transparent budgetting


Citizen News, Letter to Editor, October 28, 2015

To the Editor:

I intend to vote for Don Lowe for First Selectman and Ashleigh Blake for Selectman and I urge you to do the same. Here’s why:

Both Don and Ashleigh have paid their dues in town government and organizations. They have volunteered on numerous town boards and commissions. Ashleigh was president of the Sherman PTO. Further, they have been attending numerous meetings of various boards and
commissions, as well as the Board of Education, to both stay up-to-date on the issues, and to support the volunteers serving the town on these boards and commissions.

Both Don and Ashleigh intend to be transparent if elected. That means that citizens attending board of selectmen meetings during budget discussions will be provided with the most up-to-date copy of the
proposed budget – – the same one that the selectman are working off of. That means Board of Selectmen meeting agendas will be specific as to topics of discussion.

Both and Ashley understand the value to the town and the region of Candlewood Lake. They intend to protect it in every way that they can.

Don Lowe and Ashleigh Blake will be engaged, accessible, and effective leaders to guide our town into the future. Join me in voting for them.
