Board of Finance, Jack Fidler: October 27, 2023
To the Editor:
My name is Jack Fidler, and I am running for reelection to the Marlborough Board of Finance. As a full member of the BOF in 2023, I was a part of the board that set the town's $27 million budget. This resulted in a 0.83 mill decrease for taxpayers in town. This took teamwork and collaboration within the board and with the many elected officials and departments in town. My experience the past two years is vital going forward. With tough economic times and decisions approaching Marlborough and other towns in the area, we need members on the Board of Finance that are familiar with the budget process and town's plans. If reelected, I will bring this experience to the board.
There are things that need to be done in town to keep it livable for all residents, from young families to seniors. We have paving and construction projecys that are ongoing, a beautiful lake that needs to be supported and taken care of, responsible economic and resendential development to increase our tax base wihout over stretching our town services, and strong schools that foster the next generation. If reelected I vow to work towards maintaining and growing these essential services to town while keeping taxes low for residents. Every tax dollar needs to count. I hope that I have earned your vote for reelection on election day, and I look forward to the opportunity to continue to servce the great people of Marlborough.
I would also like to take this time to endorse the entire Marlborough Democratic slate. Our candidates have a wide variety of ages, professional backgrounds and life experiences. We have a dedicated and hardworking slate that are representative of Marlborough as a whole. We are ready to get to work for you!
