To the editor:
I have been a Republican member of the RTM for many years and am writing today in support of the independent candidacy of Tom Bremer for Board of Finance.
I have personally known Tom for more than 10 years and I have appreciated his service to the town of Fairfield as Chief of Staff.
As Chief of Staff he came before the RTM on numerous occasions and was always supported by both sides of the aisle. His funding request for a new computer system for the town and BOE was approved by the RTM years ago, and I was particularly gratified when the system was implemented, under Tom's direction, ahead of schedule and well below budget.
Having been a senior level officer for a major corporation, Tom knows the importance of fiscal prudence. His is also an effective communicator and I know that he will make a valuable addition to the Board of Finance.
On a personal level, I have known Tom and his family well, and know that he has the independent temperament and vision to put the needs of all the residents of Fairfield first in whatever issue comes before the Board of Finance.
Given all the rancor in Washington, his independent and nonpartisan voice is exactly what Fairfield needs.
Please joint me in voting for Tom Bremer for the Board of Finance.
