Editor’s note: The Easton Courier asked candidates to submit a profile and a statement discussing three top issues facing Easton and how the candidate will help address them. Christine Calvert, Republican incumbent Treasurer, submitted the following response.
Christine Calvert, a long-time Easton resident and trusted Town Hall professional, is running for re-election to her third term as Treasurer. Calvert has worked at Town Hall since 2011, both as Easton’s tax collector and finance director, and is known for being a go-to resource for a variety of issues and local informational needs.
Calvert earned her undergrad degree from Hofstra University and holds dual master’s degrees in finance and accounting from Adelphi University. She has been serving as Easton’s Finance Director for the past seven years. Calvert was also Easton’s former Tax Collector. As part of her numerous roles, she has built strong working relationships throughout Easton’s departments, boards and commissions and has become a familiar face and vital resource at Easton’s town meetings.
Calvert is a dedicated Easton resident, who is running for re-election because she wants to:
- Maintain a superior level of service, efficiency and expertise on behalf of the town she loves. Calvert has an unparalleled level of institutional knowledge on town systems and operations.
- Continue to fulfill the dual responsibilities of Treasurer and Finance Director, an approach which helps save the town money.
- Leverage her strong relationships and connections, established throughout her decades of volunteering, to benefit of all Easton residents.
Calvert has lived in Easton for more than 25 years with her husband, Shannon, and three children — all of whom attended Easton’s public schools and graduated from Joel Barlow High School. Many residents know her smiling face from frequent community volunteer work with the Easton PTO, Girl Scouts, AYSO soccer, the Easton Fireman’s Carnival, town events, and local elections.
Calvert is proud to call Easton home and looks forward to continuing to serve the residents of town.
“We have wonderful schools, great local produce, idyllic rural charm, and really handy access to Christmas trees,” she said.
