We need Bob House’s experience on our Board of Finance.
Bob is a highly qualified, dedicated individual who loves our town and whose expertise can really benefit our Board of Finance.
The Board of Finance plays a critical role in our town’s governance and operations. The members of this board oversee and propose the town’s budget and spending plan, and decide on the Mill rate that is used to compute the annual property tax. The members of this board review the town’s progress in meeting its financial goals and obligations; manage the independent auditor who monitors and reviews the town’s financial reporting; and work closely with the Board of Selectmen in setting strategies for future expenditures.
Look at Bob’s qualifications:
- Deep experience and expertise in economic analysis, policy analysis and project development from his long tenure as an economist for the federal government.
- Served as senior economist for more than 20 years for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service.
- Later served as a consultant for the Environmental Defense Fund on farm policies
- Has a Ph.D. and M.A. in Economics with a focus on Public Finance from Rice University.
He’s someone we need working on behalf of our town.
