LETTER: Budkins’ Town Clerk Office is Friendly, Courteous, Knowledgeable

Letter to the editor submitted by Jeremy Kaye

I am writing to express my support for Carmella Budkins for Town Clerk.

Carmie has been Town Clerk for the past 28 years. That does not happen by accident. It happens because she is hard working and understands the obligations and needs of the office and how to best serve the people of the Town. Isn’t that what we would hope all of our elected officials would do?

Carmie and those who work in the Town Clerk’s office exemplify the public service spirit, the one that we, as members of the Greenwich community greatly appreciate.

As a real estate attorney in Town, I have almost daily interaction with the Town Clerk’s office and that is a pleasure for me. They are friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and look to solve, not create problems.

It is my opinion that this ‘can do’ approach starts from the top. It starts with Carmie.

While I am a life long Democrat, I have recognized throughout my voting years that I have a responsibility, not to my party, but to my Town, State and Federal government to assess the qualities and capabilities of those that I vote for and to do my best to choose the best candidates to vote for.

It is for that reason that I will be voting for Carmella Budkins for Town Clerk on November 5.
