We have lived in Westport 60 and 40 years respectively. During those years we have observed local government at all levels. Helen Garten represented our disctrict on the RTM for 10 years with excellence, and as chairman of the Finance Committee, that excellence benefitted the entire community.

She has great managment skills and knowledge of finance. These skills are invaluable for one who would lead Westport.

Helen knows government, is well informed and articulate. As first selectman she will have the best interest of the town and all of its residents at heart. She is a great communicator and would listen to her constituents. This and her vast experience in government would make her an excellent first selectman.

We urge you to vote for Helen Garten.
