To the Editor:
I am running as Tax Collector for the Town of Old Lyme. As your Tax Collector, I will continue to uphold this Town’s admirable collection rate – 99 percent, one of the highest in the state – while updating our systems to make it more convenient for you to pay your taxes.
Currently as Assistant Tax Collector, I have improved our Online Payment Center and Check Bill Status and have updated our webpage to include valuable information for our taxpayers. I take the collection, depositing and record keeping of our town’s property taxes seriously, and I will continue to uphold the fiduciary responsibilities of this position.
Over the past 20 years, the town’s leaders have recognized my professional capabilities and big-picture thinking by appointing me to represent Old Lyme on the Connecticut River Gateway Commission. I know and respect regulatory statutes, policies, and procedures. My professional work experience, leading marketing and communications teams in the private sector, is beneficial to the position of Tax Collector.
I care about the Taxpayers of Old Lyme and our Town. I am a team player. With your support, I look forward to becoming your next Tax Collector.
Editor’s Note: The author is endorsed by the Old Lyme Republican Town Committee for the position of Old Lyme Tax Collector in the upcoming election.
