Anthony Filiato

Office: Legislative Council - 3rd District

Objectives: Continue to employ my skill sets to create policies and procedures for a fiscally responsible government that acts judiciously on taxes while growing the Grand List to ease the tax burden on town residents.  Hopefully, the experience gained since taking office will allow me to become even more effective in these efforts, having gone through the learning curve and now having a much better picture of all the moving parts to good governance.     While we should always remain diligent on fiscal responsibility, I believe that the incredible progress made over the past two years should allow us to address quality of life issues in town, such as rebuilding our road network.
