Election Day is Nov. 5, and voters will have to make up their minds about whom to vote for by then. Wilton is very fortunate to have many worthy candidates seeking to serve the town this year. While most people have probably already made up their minds about top ticket races for first selectman and Board of Selectmen, there are other candidates who may be less known who deserve voters’ serious consideration.
OK, he is well known but Wilton could not do much better than to bring Democrat Michael Kaelin onto the Board of Finance. As has been mentioned in many of the letters endorsing his candidacy, Kaelin has ably served the town in many capacities. There is no reason to think he would not do so on the Board of Finance. Well aware of the town’s slow real estate, he will bring a broader point of view to elevating Wilton’s economy and appeal to home buyers.
