White’s experience, dedication are benefits for New Marlborough

By Monday, May 7, 2018 Letters

To the Editor:

Experience, coupled with dedication to our community, is why we support the re-election of Tara White as selectman. For the past nine years while Tara has served on the New Marlborough Board of Selectmen, the town has received:

  • A million-dollar grant to resurface Clayton Mill River Road;
  • Half a million dollars to replace the Foley Hill Road bridge;
  • Additional acreage, free of charge, from the New Marlborough Land Trust to enlarge the Southfield cemetery; and
  • $87,000 by auctioning tax delinquent properties.

In addition to these accomplishments, she was instrumental in initiating Saturday selectboard meetings during the summer months to accommodate those
unable to attend weekday meetings as well as introducing quarterly tax billing so as to ease the town’s cash flow.

Tara has a proven track record of working tirelessly for the community, and she is receptive to new ideas and considerate of all points of view, qualities that are essential for one serving the public.  We urge all voters to cast their ballots for her re-election.

Arlyn and Owen O. Hoberman
