3. Kept taxes low with average property tax increase less than 0.35 percent over past 5 years.

4. Earned second-highest bond rating in state by Moody’s and S&P due to “strong and consistent financial performance.”

5. Led successful community effort to save a distressed hospital and 1,000 local well-paying jobs.

6. Recognized by state and federal officials for crisis management and leadership in response and recovery from Superstorm Sandy and winter storm Nemo.

7. Led economic development initiatives resulting in significant increases in business tax revenues to the town.
