STATEMENT

My first priority is to ensure that Fairfield maintains top-tier public schools, which raise property values and attract young families. To do so, the RTM must support thoughtful growth and full occupancy in our business districts, to increase our Grand List, and must maximize non-tax revenues from sources like fees charged to non-residents for beach access and facilities rentals. Another priority is to resolve all “Fill Pile” issues through full funding, swift remediation, and tightened oversight over contractors and town facilities. The RTM must also address quality of life issues like traffic congestion and the safety of our public spaces. As the only unaffiliated candidate for RTM, I bring the greatest independence and will work with anyone to address these issues.
