To the Editor:
For thirty years I have proudly served as your Tax Collector, and I thank you for your continued support over the years in re-electing me for this position. This month, I will be retiring as Tax Collector for the Town of Old Lyme.
I would like to take this opportunity to show my support for Suzanne Thompson to be your new Tax Collector. Suzanne currently works in my office and has demonstrated the skills necessary to run this office efficiently. She is very helpful to the town taxpayers who call or stop by our office. Suzanne has the knowledge, experience, and abilities to take over this responsibility.
Although my retirement is bittersweet, I will look forward to gardening more.
Editor’s Note: The author is the current Old Lyme Tax Collector. Suzanne Thompson is endorsed by the Old Lyme Republican Town Committee for the position in the upcoming election.
