I endorse the candidacy of Jennifer Tooker for the Board of Finance. Jennifer would make an excellent Board of Finance member given her strong business-management and financial background. Perhaps even more important is being able to apply her experiences as a Board of Education member to identify the consolidation opportunities that may be available and help the Board of Finance to achieve some of the efficiencies the school board has achieved.
As a current Board of Finance member, I appreciate how important it is to be able to work with other Board of Finance members, regardless of political persuasion, for the betterment of Westport. Jennifer Tooker clearly has the personality to get along and is a team player. I know that I would welcome her presence and experience on the Board of Finance.
Please join me to elect Jennifer Tooker to the Board of Finance on Nov. 5. A world-class town needs world-class management.
