Personal Statement:
Fairfield is the perfect small town, which is why my family and I made the decision to buy a home here four years ago. My goal as a member of the RTM will be to ensure that our town continues with its economic development in a way that protects our already excellent assets, such as our schools and our beaches. Fairfield is a special place, and I want to make sure it remains a vibrant community that serves the needs of all its residents while remaining an affordable place to live.
