Falmouth is fortunate to have four capable and qualified candidates running for Town Council. That said, I believe it is important to replace outgoing Councilors Fred Chase and Will Armitage with two equally cautious and accomplished people, Russ Anderson and Bryan Dench. They will support our schools, respect property rights and be vigilant in recognizing the difference between needs and wants.
Recently the council voted 4-3 not to spend more money on outside consulting fees, a split that was emblematic of how we each view the role and cost of government. I believe continuing a cautious majority will be best for Falmouth’s future. I am confident that both Anderson and Dench will hold down taxes, maintain core services and support economic vitality. Their service on the council will be good for kids, families and seniors who wish to maintain the character of Falmouth.
