    Thank you for support

    As some of you may have heard, I have resigned my position as Berlin Treasurer and Tax Collector effective Nov. 26. I want to take this opportunity to thank the residents of the Town of Berlin for the outstanding support which I have been afforded for the past eight plus years. I was first elected to the office of treasurer and tax collector in March 2004, re-elected three more times, and appointed by the selectboard in March 2012, in accordance with the recent charter change.

    The selectboard felt strongly that there be consistent daily working hours for the position and I agree. Unfortunately as time went by, I realized that this schedule would be difficult for me to maintain because of some personal commitments and my responsibilities as your legislator. With the recent legislative redistricting, my district has more than doubled. I will greatly miss meeting and seeing all of you in my capacity as treasurer but will continue to be in touch with you in my legislative role. It was a bittersweet decision but I believe it was the right one for me and for town at this point. I will now be able to focus my time on my family, my home and my new Legislative district, which includes Northfield.

    I feel proud of the level of service I was able to provide as treasurer. I brought many positive changes to the job to include financial transparency and a cooperative working relationship between my office and selectboard members. Going forward I will certainly do everything I can to help the town and the new treasurer to be successful as requested.

    It was truly a pleasure and honor to serve as your treasurer for the past eight plus years. Thank you.
