Letter: Ira Kaplan, Art Laske and Jackie Kaufman for Board of Finance

To the Editor:

All of the Town’s commissions, boards, fire and police submit their proposals for their annual budgets to the Board of Finance to determine the final budget used to calculate the mill rate for the real estate taxes. This process must be run by experienced members in finance who have participated in Town government.

Ira Kaplan, Art Laske and Jackie Kaufman currently are on the Board of Finance and have brought rationality and reason to the budget process. Balancing the needs of the community and costs have guided their work on the Board.
