I recommend that you vote for Russ Anderson for Falmouth town councilor because I’ve seen him successfully manage a business while he was president of the Woodlands Club; I know from my working with him that he has strong financial skills, listens to all options and can make tough decisions, and he has integrity and a strong sense of fairness.

His priorities for Falmouth are what we need in these difficult economic times: a high-quality school system, managed in a cost-effective manner; common-sense approach to spending and taxes; well-maintained roads, facilities and public works; effective police, fire and ambulance services; a friendly approach to business expansion and new businesses, and respect for individual property rights.

I know that he will perform his duties as town councilor with fairness, while balancing the quality and cost of town services.
