Supports candidate Rich Santosky for Wilton Board of Finance

Here’s why I think putting Rich Santosky on the Board of Finance is a wise choice.

He understands the operational needs of the Town and school’s various departments because he has experience in many of the areas needed to manage them.

He joined his local volunteer fire department 35 years ago and served as the department’s Captain and President during which time they procured equipment to conform to OSHA requirements including two new fire trucks.

He worked his way through college as a paid EMT and part-time Water/Sewer Treatment Plant Operator.

After the 9/11 attacks he was called upon by the City of New York to assist in the management of the response.

While on-site fulltime for fourteen months, he established protocols, managed budget forecasts and accounting processes, as well as the overall cost control management for all contractor & consultant operations.

As an engineer he has been responsible for building roads, infrastructure & other public works projects and understands the requirements of collective bargaining agreements.

He served as a Trustee for SUNY-Ulster.

He is now the Owner/President of a major NYC Construction/Development Firm and he has overseen several billion dollars of private and public sector work.

He has partnered with government and financial institution leaders at the highest levels, local economic development authorities as well as community groups to develop, enhance and grow underserved communities.

I believe his contributions have changed communities for the better and he will do the same in Wilton.
