Letter: Tooker top choice for finance board
Published 6:31 pm, Monday, September 16, 2013
I believe Jen Tooker is the best choice for Westport's Board of Finance.
Jen has a strong background in finance as an executive with General RE, a global financial services company.
As a current member of the Board of Education, she used that real world financial experience to shape a fiscally responsible school budget. She is the only choice that can bring a detailed understanding of the education budget to the Board of Finance. Why does that matter? Because 60 percent of Westport's spending is on education.
No other candidate has that advantage.
I encourage you to join me and make Jen Tooker your top choice for the Board of Finance.
