Letter: Vanderslice a solid choice for first selectman

To the Editors:
I was glad to see that Lynne Vanderslice has decided to run for first selectman. As a CPA and a manager of a large corporate department in the private sector, she understands the importance of ensuring that monies spent should be approved only after thorough analysis and justification. Though Lynne and I have not always agreed, I have always found that I could trust the data she used.
Lynne’s financial and leadership qualifications are sorely needed in Wilton, where taxes have increased 2.5 to 3 times the Consumer Price Index (CPI) in the past 14 years.
I encourage all of Wilton’s electors to support Lynne to ensure that, as the most qualified candidate, she has a resounding win.
