I am writing this letter in support of Bill Kosturko, a candidate for Killingworth’s Board of Finance. His experience in the financial world makes him uniquely qualified for the position. Bill is a retired banking lawyer and his decision to seek election for this crucial role reflects a desire to contribute his expertise to local governance.
Bill’s background is in banking law, a field that demands precision, attention to detail, and an in-depth understanding of financial regulations. Over the years, Bill honed his legal skills in navigating the complexities of the banking industry, dealing with matters ranging from compliance to mergers and acquisitions. He accumulated a vast knowledge of financial systems that provides him with a perspective on how these systems impact individuals and communities.
Bill’s campaign is not solely about his professional background; it also reflects his commitment to civic engagement. During both career and retirement, Bill has served as chair of several professional associations, governmental bodies, and non-profit organizations.
If elected to the BOF, Bill will bring a perspective that blends legal expertise and financial insight. His experience in dealing with complex financial matters during his legal career equips him to assess budgets critically, evaluate financial proposals, and ensure fiscal responsibility. His proven ability to communicate effectively will contribute to constructive discussions and informed decision-making within the board.
As the 2023 election approaches, Killingworth residents will have the opportunity to choose a candidate who not only understands financial intricacies, but also values the role of local governance in shaping their collective future. Please join me in voting for Bill in the November 7, 2023 election.
