On October 6, The Day published the following letter from Lyme resident Phyllis Ross:
Lyme voters will be choosing three candidates for the Board of Finance. They will remember this past May when Republican board members went rogue and, without talking to relevant commissions, cut half the town’s funding for preservation of open space. Lyme citizens showed disapproval by overwhelmingly voting against cutting the Open Space Reserve Fund at the annual Town Meeting.
Lyme residents should vote for Democrats Bob House and Alan Sheiness for Board of Finance and Jim Miller as an alternate. They understand the values of our town, communicate well with others, and have a wealth of expertise in finance.
Bob, with a Ph.D. and M.A. in Economics, served two years as a Board of Finance Alternate. He worked as a Senior Economist for the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Alan, with over 30 years of financial and executive management experience, held positions as a corporate controller and principal accounting officer. He is treasurer of Lyme Land Trust.
Jim, with an MBA in Finance, has 20 years of experience as a commercial and investment banker.
