These are some areas I would like to work on as a member of the Brandon select board:

  • an equitable union contract which both values our Town employees and is fair to the taxpayers who pay them
  • measurable and visible progress on infrastructure projects, both Irene-related and not
  • enabling of a 1% local-option tax on meals/rooms/alcohol with 100% of the revenue dedicated to investment in our infrastructure
  • furthering the building of transparency and trust between citizens and the town government
    • clarity in budgeting — show how expenses translate to the property tax bill
    • periodic contributions to Front Porch Forum to keep voters informed, involved, and invited to participate
  • fostering the spirit of collaboration with other board members, Town employees and citizens
