I have known Avi Kaner for many years, and I support his election to the selectmen's office with Jim Marpe.
As chairman of the board of finance, Avi introduced much-needed consensus building among board members and the selectman's office. More has been accomplished in the past two years under his chairmanship than during the last six years.
Avi is extremely competent in financial matters. He has been able to apply his extensive financial and management experience to benefit our town. The town has now started pension- and retiree-benefit reform, maintaining reserves, paying down long term debt, and fully funding our obligations -- all with conservative financial discipline ensuring Westport's AAA rating.
Avi Kaner will ensure that our assets, including schools and homes, will be protected for years to come. Please vote for the Marpe/Kaner ticket on Nov. 5.
