Chris Caiazzo stands out as the best of many candidates on the Nov. 3 ballot for Town Council in Scarborough. His tenure on the School Board shows his passion for service to the community, and the way he functioned as a leader and consensus builder during our school budget referendum voting marathon is praiseworthy.
As chairman of the board’s finance committee, Chris pioneered innovative ideas that should bear fruit in future budget debates. He worked with council finance Chairman Shawn Babine to form a joint budget committee. Caiazzo and Babine also worked together with Town Manager Tom Hall to host a public forum where town residents could ask questions about the budget. This forum was very well attended and while it may not have swayed some critics, I believe most residents appreciated the fact-based approach to community involvement in the process.
I urge voters to elect Chris Caiazzo to the Town Council.
