Transparency lacking on the Old Lyme Board of Finance

I recently attended several Board of Finance meetings virtually and was struck by the amount of business being conducted outside the meeting and not being discussed publicly or captured in meeting minutes for public access. For example, the August financial report was on the agenda for the Sept. 21 meeting. However, if residents were interested in learning about the town’s financial standing, they would have been disappointed. BOF members were asked by Chairman Kelsey to submit any questions via email, rather than discussing them at the meeting. The taxpayers of this town deserve transparency when it comes to our tax dollars.

This election, I will be voting for transparency in government, fiscal responsibility and the Democratic slate to the Old Lyme Board of Finance on Nov. 2.
