Hummel would restructure budget without raising taxes

SCITUATE – Sacha Hummel, a lifelong Scituate resident, is running for Town Council as a Democrat.

Over the next few weeks, Hummel said he will be sharing some of the critical issues that he is eager to address if elected to the council.

One of his major initiatives is to look into restructuring the town budget to balance without raising taxes, he said. “This will begin with a heavy audit of what is necessary and needed in the current budget,” he said. “There are often allocated funds in the budget that go unused. By closely examining what is truly needed, Scituate can reallocate funds to areas that need more attention.”
