STATEMENT

The Town of Fairfield, similar to the state, needs to rein in spending. We all need to spend within our means. Property tax increases that exceed the rate of inflation hurt working families, those living on a fixed income, the underlying value of our homes and slows down economic growth. With two children in the public school system, I want to continue to support academic excellence in Fairfield’s schools. I am also focused on finding better solutions that are unique to the beach area, like speeding and parking issues in a residential setting.
