Rotini endorses candidate Raimondi for Wilton Board of Finance seat

Like many voters, I don’t vote party line, but rather I review the qualifications of candidates before deciding for whom to vote. I’ve had the opportunity to get to know an intelligent, kind, and eminently qualified candidate for Board of Finance, Matt Raimondi. A finance professional, Matt is a successful private equity investor who understands what businesses need to flourish in town and has worked with companies to plan their growth.

He takes the time to do good works throughout the community, serving on the Boards of the Kennedy Children’s Center, which provides children with developmental delays and their families with educational services; Friends of Sherwood Island State Park; REACH, which works to expand mental health training for medical professionals increasing accessibility for children and families; and Wilton EDC. A product of Wilton schools, Matt is recently married and returned to town not for our school system, but because he knows that Wilton is a wonderful place to live.

Matt can help maintain our tax rate and balanced budget, while ensuring funding for Wilton’s public spaces. With the lack of return funding from Hartford, Wiltonians have to rely upon ourselves to ensure appropriate financing for important public programs, including Master Planning and other Planning & Zoning initiatives.

The BOF requires professional finance experience, not simply general experience — that is why this Unaffiliated voter endorses Matt Raimondi for Board of Finance.
