Office:Board of Finance

Objectives:Analyzing financial decisions requires objective analysis e.g.  What are the incentives of the presenter? How good are the assumptions? Are there other alternatives? What are the risks of moving forward? What are the contingency plans? Here's my pledge. I will take as much time and effort to understand the financial dynamics of all proposals, budgets and initiatives before I recommend to spend your money. Most importantly, I recognize that it is compromise that moves life along. I pledge to work for you, the people of Newtown to move the town forward.
