To the Editor:

I support Joe Caruso for re-election as town treasurer in Bridgewater in the Nov. 5 election.

His election by a 3 to 1 margin in 2011 reflected a widespread belief the treasurer needs to provide independent oversight that the statutes require.

He brought to this office his experience as a banker and businessman. His made efforts to institute needed reforms.

Bridgewater's independently elected officials, boards and commissions are there to provide needed checks and balances in our town government.

Nancy Hawley and Leo Null will bring needed change to the Board of Selectman, and will support and respect the independence and integrity of these offices.
