To the Editor:
Some years ago before I even ran for public office, I had a conversation with Mayor Lauretti. The substance of that conversation was the importance of the Board of Apportionment and Taxation. He indicated to me that the Board of A&T was a vital instrument in our local government, going so far as to say that it was the most important board that we had here in Shelton. And I remember him telling me that if I wanted to serve, that’s where I should start.
