August Fund Raising Letter


Dear Neighbor,

It is almost two years since Sherman elected Don Lowe, First Selectman, and Kevin Keenan, Selectman. Both Don and Kevin thank you for the support you have given them, and greatly appreciate the opportunities they have had to serve and work with the people of Sherman. It has been a very busy and productive two years.

What has been accomplished in the first two years?

■/ Followed a zero budget increase in 2018 with a tax decrease of 2.5% in 2019.

■/ Made Sherman’s infrastructure a number one priority. Putting together a team with the necessary expertise and experience resulted in significant progress in returning potable water to our public buildings and school.

■/ Provided strong, responsive support to our Seniors.

■/ Led a regional effort to create baseline air monitoring in response to the anticipated opening of the Cricket Valley Natural Gas plant.

■/ Reinvigorated and expanded town boards and commissions by inviting, involving, and utilizing the untapped talent that Sherman’s residents have to offer.

■/ Improved coordination between town entities and better overall communication has led to improvements and greater efficiencies in serving the taxpayer.

While we have made great progress in the first two years, there are many challenges facing the town government in the immediate future including;

  • Continued effective management of the town budget
  • Development of a new farm management plan for Happy Acres
  • Support for increased activities and housing for our seniors
  • Final resolution of the water issues facing our town center

■/ Long term planning for town infrastructure needs to avoid future issues

The Sherman Democratic Town Committee spends considerable time and effort in recruiting the best candidates to serve our town. We believe in utilizing the strengths and talents of all who volunteer their time and support and we thank them for doing so.

To keep making progress for Sherman, we ask for your financial support and sincerely thank you for your contributions to our efforts.
