Ken MacKenzie will bring not only energy and expertise but a fresh viewpoint to the position of first selectman. Mr. MacKenzie’s investigation into the details of our town’s cash account showed he believes it is earning an interest rate below what should be expected. This substantial loss of interest income would have been useful in helping to reduce Guilford’s ever-increasing tax burden. Although our taxes have funded projects that have aided in making our town special, we should not squander our opportunities.
Sometimes it is necessary to get a new perspective. Sometimes it is necessary to take a new look at the important details. Sometimes it is necessary to ask the right questions. This is what Ken MacKenzie will bring to the position of first selectman.
