Taxman

Tax collectorWestport is looking for a new tax collector.

George Underhill — whose name is on so many Westporters’ bills — is retiring after 16 years on the job.  He’s done a great job — but filling his tax collecting shoes should be a slam dunk.

Plenty of Westporters with accounting, business administration and bookkeeping backgrounds are looking for work.  Others who have jobs may want to work closer to home.

The municipal pay might be low — $75,000 to $80,000 a year — but there are solid medical benefits.  Your pension won’t disappear.  And you can’t beat the commute.

The application deadline is August 14.  Click here for more details.

  1. Actually, the best candidiate is right under our noses. Peggy Klein, the Deputy Collector, has been doing yeoman work in that office for years—and she has the Certifications to do the job. In some Conn. Towns, top jobs are doled out as political plums with Deputies doing the heavy lifting. Gordon’s done a good job of picking people on merit.
    Dan, if you ask around, you’ll find she’s the “go to guy” at the tax office.

  2. Peggy Klein….You betcha….
    The best one for the job.
