Iannello is a servant with vision

The Daily Star

---- — Iannello is a servant with vision

On Election Day, the town of New Berlin will vote for supervisor and two council seats. Having had a first-hand, front-row view of what goes on at town hall, there are observations to share.

Ross Iannello, town supervisor, is easy to work with and helps people come to a consensus. He is a servant with vision that foresees the elements necessary to bring a project to fruition. He is a farmer and statesman; committed to family, church and community who has had respected and successful careers in agriculture, real estate, judicial realm, town and county government.

Mr. Iannello is a smart, well-educated, disciplined man who doesn’t hold a grudge, start an argument or keep one going. His office is open to anyone who needs to talk, get an explanation or to give an opinion. He has an abundance of knowledge and outstanding people skills. He is diligent to make sure things are being done according to law. The budget is available at Town, village, school and county expenses are available at the Office of the State Comptroller’s website, where comparisons can be made.

He begins a meeting on time, conducts it in a business-like manner and ends when the business is concluded. Business includes oversight of multimillion-dollar improvement projects, town road maintenance, repair and acquisitions, town-wide police presence, code inspection and compliance, dog safety, provisioning licenses, contracts, purchasing, support for local organizations and events and is accomplished with the well-informed current town council members. Executive sessions are employed for issues with sensitive information just as they are in all municipal governments.

Please elect Ross Iannello, capable, competent, comprehensive, with moral principles. He persistently gets things done and consistently takes measures to ease rather than increase the tax burden.
