Letter: Tooker's experience needed on finance
Published 10:32 am, Thursday, October 3, 2013
Jen impressed me from day one, when our families moved in across the street from one another in 2008. Jen's enthusiastic and optimistic outlook makes for a great neighbor and an even better advocate for the citizens of Westport.
Beyond her genuinely delightful personal presence, Jen brings a unique set of skills: experience and dedication to serve the people of Westport. Her more than two-decade career in international finance at Gen Re gives her an intuitive understanding of the financial issues our town faces. As a current member of the Board of Education, Jen knows first hand the trade-offs inherent in the largest portion of the town budget. I know she will work as tirelessly on the broader issues facing our town as she has worked for the educational well-being of our children.
Jen Tooker is the only candidate with this crucial mix of experience, and thus I urge you to make Jen Tooker your choice for Board of Finance on Nov. 5.
