FORMER RTM MAJORITY JOSEPH J. PALMER NAMED RTM REPUBLICAN BUDGET DIRECTOR

Fairfield, CT—March 5, 2014—The Republican RTM caucus today announced that Joseph J. Palmer, a third-term RTM Republican from District Four, has been appointed as its Budget Director for this year’s budget cycle. In this position, Rep. Palmer will facilitate Republican caucus budget meetings, budget discussions, budget analysis and generate support for budget initiatives, all along while working hard to mitigate Town spending, and the impact to the taxpayer. Representative Palmer’s appointment was unanimously approved by the Republican RTM leadership team, and applauded by the full caucus.

Commenting on the appointment, Peter Ambrose (R-2), RTM Finance Chairman remarked, “Rep. Palmer has distinguished himself as a fiscal conservative during his tenure on the RTM.” “As the former RTM Majority Leader, Joe contributed greatly to the budget conversation last year that ultimately drove the tax increase down to 2.3%. I look forward to working with Joe in his new role as the RTM Republican Budget Director.”

 “RTM Republican Budget Director Palmer has a proven track record of effectively managing the Town budget from a RTM perspective,” said Tom Flynn, Chairman, Board of Finance. “Joe’s strong negotiation skills and deep relationships with other Town boards should serve the taxpayer well as the budget season unfolds. I wish Joe much success in this capacity.”

RTM Majority Leader Ed Bateson (R-3), remarked, “I want to thank Budget Director Palmer for his ongoing willingness to serve the taxpayer.” “If we are to effectively manage Town spending and do the job that voters elected us to do as a legislative body, then we need someone of Joe’s caliber and integrity to lead RTM Republicans from the onset of the budget process.”
