The election for the office of our Town Treasurer is an important vote for our town. When it comes to the stewardship of our town's funds, it is important to me that people of the highest integrity be in charge. Trust, honesty, comprehensive understanding of the town and unquestionable commitment to the people of New Canaan are the qualities we should aspire to find in a candidate.
One New Canaanite running for this office, without question, meets these qualifications. His opponent, on the contrary, had made business decisions in the past that led to calamitous results that clearly calls putting the trust of our town funds in their hands unwise. It is very important to note the professional qualifications of people we elect to represent us.
Don Hersam, on the other hand, has always represented the best of New Canaan. The highest level of integrity, ethics and a belief in New Canaan are what Don Hersam represents to me. The results of his public life have earned my trust and my vote.
