Letter to the editor submitted by Mary Jo Lovetri Whelan, Cos Cob
I am writing to support Heather Smeriglio for the office of Tax Collector.
I’ve known Heather for many years, both professionally and personally. In my opinion, Heather is most qualified to be our town’s Tax Collector. Heather recently served the town of Greenwich by working in the Tax Collector’s office.
During her tenure in the Greenwich Tax Collector’s office, Heather went back to school and became certified by the State of Connecticut as a Municipal Tax Collector.
Heather is one of only three people in our town who holds this state certification. Heather currently serves our town in its Parking Services Department.
Prior to Heather’s professional service to the town, she had a long and successful career in banking at Greenwich Federal Savings, Cornerstone Bank, Greenwich Bank & Trust, Sound Federal and the First Bank of Greenwich.
Heather is a Greenwich native; the third generation of her family to be born and raised in Greenwich.
Heather is active in her church, her children’s schools and the community, having served as Treasurer for both the Greenwich Rotary and the Greenwich Chamber of Commerce.
Heather’s record speaks for itself and makes her uniquely qualified to be the town of Greenwich Tax Collector.
