Don Funderlic (incumbent)Assure that funds are spent in the most efficient manner. Infrastructure needs have been neglected in many areas, so the assessment and prioritization of improvements are critical needs I have advocated. Key in today's economic climate is that the Town maintains its positive financial position and NOT overspend or unnecessarily drawdown reserves. I have a strong sense of the fiduciary responsibility to the residents and seek detailed justification on expenditures. Maintain the sense of community, and that the Town should not impose undue regulations on our citizens and that our police and fire departments significantly contribute to differentiating Pantego.Current Pantego Councilman, Chairman PARO, Served as Chairman Ad Hoc Water Committee, and Chairman Pantego Crime Watch Board.
Over 39 years of proven experience in working with local, governments on infrastructure improvements, and citizen concerns. My business degree proves an understanding of budget and revenue issues. I look for logical and justifiable solutions, which provide for the most effective use of the Towns funds. Proven ability to understand complex issues and ask the hard technical and financial questions, impacting the Town’s citizens and staff. Education background: BSCE Valparaiso University, MBA Notre Dame.
