Kaslow for Finance Committee

by Press Release
May 13, 2013

 

Charles Kaslow asks for your support as a write-in for the two-year term on the Finance Committee.

 

 

"My family (wife Valerie and daughter Danielle) and I moved to Holliston ten years ago when we relocated to MA for profewssionaL opportunity in Walpole where I managed their North American gasturbine defense programs. More recently I transferred to a division of Siemens AG to manage their international service facilities for power generating equipment"

Last year when the Finance Committee and the Board of Selectmen identified a shortage of members on the Finance Committee I offered to serve and was honored by being selected and appointed. When my family and I lived in NH I was also privileged to serve on a number of town boards including the Planning Board, ZBA and the Finance Committee.

My current tenure on the Finance Committee has provided me the opportunity to better understand the MA statutory framework as well as the town’s procedures for budgetary management of our valuable tax dollars. Fundamentally, my approach has been and will continue to be if elected of applying the “golden rule” to the Finance Committee’s reviews and communications to residents. As a resident and taxpayer I will ensure that the Committee’s reviews and deliberations are well documented and available in a timely manner, particularly when the meetings are not televised. This is a work in progress. As a resident and taxpayer, I will treat reviews of budgets and how those funds are spent as if they are coming from my own pocket – because they are. Fundamentally, I will approach the task from the public’s side of the table and questioning why things “have always been done that way.” Two things appear important on any municipal board, frequent / healthy debate and the bright light of public visibility.

I appreciate the opportunity to have served the town this past year and ask the voters for the honor of their write-in vote next week for the currently uncontested two-year seat. Rather than run as the fourth candidate for the three seats on the three-year term, I opted to run for the uncontested two-year seat.
