Board of Finance
I write in support of Peter Balderston, Republican Board of Finance member running for a second, four-year term. Balderston has demonstrated deft skills balancing Wilton’s need to fund our schools and town services with our need to keep costs affordable for taxpayers. Balderston’s career focus on finance and accounting has made him a valuable member of the Board of Education’s Business Operations Subcommittee, where he delves into Wilton school financials, seeking ways to save money without undermining the system’s excellent outcomes. This is a critical skill set at a time of lower school enrollments and challenging real estate markets.
