STATEMENT

I am a lifelong Fairfield resident with a steadfast belief in the importance of preserving and adhering to our small-town form of governance secured in the Town Charter.  This system is unusual for a town this size and at times seems unwieldy with powers spread among so many independent boards and commissions.  But therein lies the secret to keeping Fairfield a town and not devolving into a city.  Your friends and neighbors populate these boards and serve as direct links to the citizens in a manner that can’t be achieved by a centralized form of governance.  Following the Charter, listening to one another and coming together at meetings is paramount to maintaining what is great about this town.  This is the driving force behind any vote or decision I will make if I am elected to the RTM’s 4th District.
