To the Editor:
I support Ira Kaplan, Jackie Kaufman, and Art Laske for the Board of Finance (BOF). We need members who will balance costs, but also see the value of investing in our community.
After learning about the proposal by certain Republican members of the BOF to eliminate funding for the Park and Recreation Department, I became concerned.
Please take the time to review the March 24, 2021, BOF special meeting minutes at Eastonct.gov here and the meeting video at Eastonct.gov here. The Park and Rec discussion begins at timestamp 48:14. You can draw your own conclusions.
