Candidate Interviews Reveal the Top Choices for Sherman

Citizen News, Letter to Editor, October 28, 2015

To the Editor:

The in-depth candidate interviews in the October 14th Citizen News, revealed the best choices for the voters in Sherman.

Don Lowe has it right: The biggest challenge going forward’is “the budget – always”. That’s the correct answer from a First Selectman – always. While other towns have separate boards of finance, Sherman does not. Our First Selectman is also the Chief Financial Officer, and the primary responsibilities are financial. Don Lowe is the only candidate who sees – and understands – the big picture.

Ashleigh Blake also has it right. She outlined tangible opportunities to better serve Sherman, clearly articulating her vision free from corporate
lingo and institutional gobble-de-gook.

Please VOTE next Tuesday for Don and Ashleigh; the right choices to lead Sherman.

Kate Sweetser McConaghy,
Former Sherman Selectman
