Letter to the Editor: Reiter Seeks Re-Election to Old Lyme BOF, Commits to Respect Every Tax Dollar

To the Editor:

When I was 17, if you had told me that in 20 years I would be living in Old Lyme, raising my own family and running for a seat on our Board of Finance, I probably would have said, “That’s a possibility.” I grew up in Old Lyme and have always had a love of civics and an interest in the inner workings of our town, state and federal governments. When I was approached several years ago to run for a seat as an alternate on the BOF, it was an easy decision to make.

For the past two years I have thoroughly enjoyed being an engaged member of the BOF, listening to funding requests and thoughtfully discussing what is best for our community. My background working in environmental engineering has been helpful in figuring out how and where to best allocate our funds, while at the same time respecting and appreciating our low mill rates.

I value every dollar my family has and I promise to respect every tax dollar of yours. Our small town is very special, I moved back to this town when my husband and I decided to start a family. I want to see this town vibrant and strong long into the future, I would be honored to serve again on the Board of Finance. I respectfully ask for your vote on November 5 at the Cross Lane Firehouse.

Thank you.


Anna Reiter ,
