As a representative of the Board Volunteers and Friends of , I have been a keenly interested participant in this year’s budget process. I would like to commend the Board of Selectmen and the Board of Finance for the effort they have made to present the voters of Wilton with both a responsible budget and a thoughtful slate of capital funding projects.
Naturally, all of us associated with Ambler Farm hope the voters will approve the funds needed to restore the 200 year old Raymond Ambler Farmhouse, which the Town of Wilton owns. This work is required by the property’s deed. We are confident that investing in this unique historic, cultural and educational resource will yield many dividends for our community.
At the same time, as members of the community, we believe that it’s at least equally important that each of us who has a vote to cast does so. Whether we like all of the projects, some of them or none of them, only by voting can we affirm our commitment to the process that allows us all to make choices about the kind of community we want to be, today and in the years to come.
