Lagree experienced in budget, operations and management
I have known Jay Lagree for 25 years. Jay has been a capable leader in Rehoboth for 30 years; he is trustworthy, industrious and always well prepared for whatever task he faces.
Previously Jay was appointed by Mayor Kuhns to fill a vacant commissioner’s seat. Jay is not a johnny-come-lately to city activities. Prior services were the beach and Boardwalk committee and the city audit committee, providing working knowledge of the city’s budget and operation that is important for the impending fiscal difficult time ahead. His service included the period when the wastewater plant was a very public issue due to the exorbitant cost and questionable decisions. He spoke out with concern in a letter to the Gazette. Other service was with the homeowners’ association.
Jay’s prior activities did not include a plan to run for local office, but his altruism toward our lifestyle and to our city is without question. Jay decided to stand for office because his experience of auditing the city budget will be helpful in managing city finances in the days ahead; he would like to visit with any resident interested in his candidacy between now and Aug. 8. A vote for Jay is a vote for experience in the city’s budget, operations and management.
