To the Editor:
I urge voters in the Third District to vote for Cheryl Thibeault, your current Board of Finance chairwoman now running for your city council district seat.
Having worked with and for Cheryl for years, I want to share with you that in my opinion, Cheryl Thibeault, is one of the best, if not the best Board of Finance chair from a point of view of talent that I have had the pleasure to know and observe among the four municipalities I worked for during my 37-year career in municipal finance.
She has an accounting and management career background, unfaltering leadership skills, common sense intelligence, and is experienced in budgeting, debt management, as well as auditing and financial reporting.
That kind of direct experience would be an asset to the council in addition to representing the interests of the Third District.
You should know Cheryl does her background agenda homework and comes prepared to ask the right questions and probes deep when necessary to seek answers on difficult matters of the city.
Lastly, I have observed first hand how Cheryl handle’s people’s personal political agenda’s that arise from time to time.
She has the ability to politely say and vote “no” with tact and diplomacy - always keeping the interests of the entire city in the forefront.
Voters of the Third District would be well served to vote for Cheryl Thibeault.
