Other facts

I am a fiscal conservative. As the Ledyard Town Council Finance Committee Chairman, I led the effort to bring forward to referendum a town budget that held the mil rate constant. Through leadership and working closely with the Mayor, Board of Education and Superintendent, we were able to stabilize the property tax rate for all Ledyard residents. I will take these same principles of leadership and fiscal responsibility with me to Hartford.
