What Falmouth needs for governance is no difference from any other communities. We need leadership with a vision of long term financial health and stability.
Russ Anderson has done it. After a successful private-sector career, Russ served as president of the Maine Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Russ stepped into a challenging situation. How to maintain service levels and balance a budget during an increasingly difficult fundraising environment? He was again successful.
Meeting the needs of the town and curtailing escalating costs is a tall order. This is no time for “on the job training.” Let’s entrust decision making to proven track records. Russ Anderson has such a track record and will represent our town responsibly.
