Bray: “A Wilton Advocate ⎯An Introduction”
To the Editor:
I am running for the Board of Selectman and want to introduce myself. My family and I moved to Wilton in 1988. We raised three daughters and I have continually been involved in civic activities throughout that time, recently serving on the Board of Education in leadership positions, chair for two years and vice chair for three.
I desire to serve on the BoS to continue my service to our town. It is a wonderful place to live and I want to advocate for you and your family by enhancing the quality of life and maintenance of town services, making Wilton a desirable place to live and work.
First a word about my background. I grew up in St. Louis, went to university in Texas, graduate school in Washington D.C., was drafted and spent two years in the military. I worked as a U.S. Senator’s legislative aide then moved to the Senate Banking Committee as subcommittee counsel. After several legislative sessions I joined Citibank and worked in London, Frankfurt (where our daughters were born) and Geneva before returning to work on the Citibank FX trading floor in NYC and live in Wilton. During that time I developed an FX trading and confirmation system. The latter was sold to Misys International Banking Systems, a U.K. financial software house, together with the staff. I continue to work for Misys today.
Why am I telling you this? My varied life experiences both within and outside Wilton would add an experienced and thoughtful voice to the BoS.
