I am Stephen Gilligan and I am seeking re-election as Arlington’s Town Treasurer. I am a life-long resident and graduate of Arlington High School - Class of 1972.
My education, background, and professional experience uniquely qualifies me to continuing to serve you ably as treasurer. I hold an MBA concentrating in Managerial Finance from Northeastern, and a BA in Economics from UMass Boston.
As your Town Treasurer, my primary goals are: to maintain Arlington’s Triple-A bond rating (the highest credit rating possible); to gain the best possible investments for our benefit and pension funds; to work to realign Arlington’s disparate technology, database management tools, and software applications to work more effectively among the Treasurer, Assessors, Comptroller, and Schools; to grow the Town Scholarship Fund; and to initiate a semi-annual advisory conference among the treasurer, selectmen, Town Manager, Assessors, Comptroller, Schools and Finance Committee.
As your Town Treasurer, I am committed to ensure that all operations in this office will be performed at the highest possible standard.
My education, professional experience, long-term Arlington government service, and community involvement qualify me to build on my record as your Treasurer.
I respectfully ask for your vote for Town Treasurer on Saturday, April 5th.
