Saxton, a home owner in South Bethany since 1996, previously served on the town council from June 2009 through May 2011 and served as its treasurer, as well as the first chair of the Budget & Finance Committee established in 2009. The committee’s goal is to gain wider input in the Town’s budget process from owners with financial and business expertise.

Saxton has spent more than 30 years in the pharmaceutical industry, overseeing operations for the conduct of research programs. His work included long-range planning and budgeting.

In 2011, Saxton said, his career necessitated moving to Colorado, but he has now returned to his home in South Bethany and said he is looking forward to once again becoming a part of the town council leadership.

Saxton said that, if given the opportunity to serve, he will emphasize fiscal prudence and openness, and would work to ensure that South Bethany manages its resources and finances for the betterment of the community.
