STATEMENT

I love Fairfield. It is a vibrant and dynamic community filled with amazing people who truly look out for each other. I am proud to be part of the leadership of Fairfield as an RTM representative, and hope to continue my service to the town in this capacity. As a social worker, one of my strengths is bringing people to the table, actively listening to them, and working to build consensus. All of these are the qualities that I believe we need in our leaders in order to continue the trajectory of progress, and solve the problems we are currently facing as a town. In my next term, I’ll continue to focus on making sure Fairfield maintains its historic charm while continuing its economic development, and will prioritize issues like education, affordability for both families and seniors, and protection of our town’s assets, including our wetlands and beaches.
