Frantz: Fassuliotis is a clear choice for new budget leadership in Greenwich

Letter to the editor submitted by L. Scott Frantz on Aug 29, 2017

On September 12, 2017 Greenwich Republicans will have a vote to decide who they wish to represent them on the Board of Estimate and Taxation (BET).

Endorsed by our Town’s Republican party, Karen Fassuliotis is a clear choice for new budget leadership in Greenwich.

A practicing attorney, she will be the only Republican lawyer on the BET.

Add her law degree to her PhD in Toxicology and Pharmacology and you have an individual who has the education and work experience to “ask the right questions” as the Town negotiates the cleanup of our fields and Town property.

An RTM member for seven years, past Chair of the Health and Human Services Committee and current Vice-Chair of the Transportation Committee, Karen understands our Town’s budgeting process and has been a consistent voice for common sense spending.

She gives of her time generously to the Greenwich Probate Court, working to assist those Greenwich residents who cannot speak for themselves in Court.

Karen is a long time Greenwich resident (over 50 years!), went through the Greenwich school system and has been a strong advocate for preserving our neighborhoods.

Please support a new kind of budget leadership for Greenwich. I urge Republicans to vote for Karen Fassuliotis on September 12th!
