Selectman David Theis, a Greenwich resident with a background in eduation and finance, discusses his goals for the Board of Selectmen if re-elected on November 5th.

In regards to appointments and nominations, a primary function for the Board of Selectmen, Theis said, "There are so many ways to approach certain issues and we can't pretend to know it all. I want to encourage volunteerism in the town. I want everybody to feel like they have a role to play in government and so whatever your passion is, we like to come forward and offer your insights."

The Town of Greenwich is working on several projects in town in regards to public safety, education and senior citizens. Theis said, "We have three major projects in the works right now. Certainly public safety is important, the needs of senior citizens is important but we can't do all we want to do because we have to be mindful of the economic environment."

Theis also discussed bullying. He said, "This is a problem that is as old as mankind itself. It's not going to go away by itself. It's getting easier and easier for people to bully. It happens at night through cyberspace."

Citing his background in finance, Theis shared his views on the Town's finances. "We need to take on new projects and spend more money when it's realistic. We want all the same things for people that everybody else does but we want be sure it's realistic and economically sustainable."

In regards to the overcrowding at New Lebanon School, Theis said, "The most important thing is to focus on what is happening in the classroom and not neccessarily what it looks like on the outside."
