The Town of New Canaan is fortunate to have Andrew Brooks as its Treasurer, and we deserve to have him continue in that position.
During his tenure as Treasurer, Andrew has transformed the office from an honorary role into one of significant substance. He has applied his financial experience and leadership skills to implement real changes in the way our tax dollars are managed. Among other contributions, Andrew has enriched the Town’s treasury by increasing income from investments, strengthening scrutiny and containment of the Town’s expenditures, reducing fees and protecting our AAA bond rating in spite of Connecticut’s multiple rating downgrades. He has collaborated closely with our Audit Committee, external auditors, and Finance Department officials to propose and implement enhanced internal controls.
I have known Andrew Brooks for over 10 years. He is exceptionally bright, loyal, diligent, hardworking and a team player. Above all else, he is focused on protecting and improving New Canaan values for you.
After having endured financial assaults from Hartford’s tired, counterproductive tax-and-spend policies, it is important for New Canaan’s future that we elect local and state candidates who are dedicated to fiscal responsibility and responsive to the needs of all residents. Therefore, I urge you to vote on November 7, 2017 for Treasurer Andrew Brooks and the entire slate of Republican candidates.
