Board of Finance, In Support of Karen Pakulis Paul: September 29, 2023
Updated: Sep 30
To the Editor:
I am writing to enthusiastically endorse Karen Pakulis Paul for the Marlborough Board of Finance (BoF). Karen’s training and work experience in finance provide her with extensive knowledge of taxes, setting and tracking budgets, and maintaining capital projects. Her work on the BoF as an alternate ensures that she is familiar with Marlborough’s financial matters, able to provide valuable insight and expertise immediately. Equally important is the fact that Karen attends BoF meetings, is actively engaged in matters before the Board, is committed to understanding the implications of budget proposals, and is deeply concerned about the financial viability of Marlborough.
Karen has further demonstrated her commitment to ensuring the long-term health and wellbeing of Marlborough residents by her active participation in the town’s Sustainable CT initiative. Her insight into the issues that are relevant to ensuring that Marlborough can attract new businesses and young families while addressing the needs of our seniors, and her willingness to research and thoroughly understand the issues under consideration have been vital to the team’s efforts. I have been especially impressed with her organizational skills, which have been essential for our team’s efforts to monitor various initiatives. Her attention to details has enabled us to keep on track, and to meet important deadlines. I particularly appreciate Karen’s commitment to ensuring open communication with the residents of Marlborough, which is one of the initiatives in the Sustainable CT program that Karen is spearheading. That commitment to open lines of communication is also crucial for all members of the BoF.
Please cast your vote for Karen for Marlborough BoF on November 7th .
Peggy Golfin, Marlborough
