We moved to Fairfield in 2000 without knowing too much about the town. Once we decided to start a family, we chose to stay here to raise our kids because of the excellent public schools. As a stay at home mom, I have come to appreciate so much more than the schools in town. My goal is to work on keeping Fairfield affordable for all its residents, while continuing to support the vital programs and services that make the town an ideal place to live.
