Board of Finance

  • Town Attorney: No Provision To Settle Split Vote For Finance Chair

    In the event of a tie vote, should Democrat James Gaston chair the newly elected Board of Finance based on the fact that he received the most votes on November 3, or because he spent several terms as finance board vice chair before he sought and served two terms on the Board of Selectmen?

    Or does Republican John Godin deserve consideration after being reelected as the finance board’s only incumbent?

  • Looking Forward To The New Term

    To the Editor:

    I’d like to thank the voters of Newtown for electing me to another term on the Board of Finance. I am humbled by your trust and will pledge to work hard on your behalf during the upcoming term.  I look forward to working with Jim, Mark, Kelly, Sandy and Aaron as the board continues its important work over the coming term.

  • Congratulations And Thanks

We Newtowners are all in this together, whether young, living paycheck to paycheck, paying college tuitions, or retired.

  • Working Hard For All Newtown Residents

    To the Editor:

    Last month I wrote to introduce my candidacy for Board of Finance to your readership and to lay out my vision: make Newtown affordable for every resident and taxpayer. Through the campaigning proc-ess, I’ve met some wonderful people and learned a great deal about the town that I’ve proudly made my home for the last 12 years. I’d like to mention some people in particular who have showed me support and encouraged me to embark on this journey.

    My name is Aaron Carlson, and I am excited for the opportunity to offer my services as a candidate for the Newtown Board of Finance.  My wife and I moved to town 8.5 years ago for the excellent school sys-tem and we have since grown to a wonderful family of five. We are all so proud to call Newtown our home.
