As a mother to a 5-year-old and 2-year-old and former public school teacher, I understand the value of an excellent school system and will consistently support education as the foundation for a strong community. At the same time, I believe we need to take care of our seniors who are an integral part of our vibrant community. My children have a best friend in our senior neighbor and we have the privilege of enjoying a diverse neighborhood; it’s relationships like these that I love about Fairfield. Our town is growing in leaps and bounds, we want to attract new business to help maintain and strengthen our tax base. I’m interested in helping our town grow in a balanced manner that will maintain our heritage, environment, and the quality of life that we enjoy here in beautiful Fairfield.

I am passionate about protecting the environment. Our daily actions and local initiatives can have a big impact toward reducing pollution and our carbon footprint. Fairfield’s efforts to increase our use of clean energy and to increase our recycling are very important to me.
Having two children in our public schools, a quality education is a high priority for me. The school system is actually what originally drew my family to Fairfield. We have to balance the financial requirements of a strong school system with prudent decisions about expenditures and their effect on our tax base.
I have lived in Fairfield since 1995, and have been very involved in the community through our environmental organizations, our schools, and my place of worship. I am very motivated to make a positive impact on our town through becoming a member of the RTM.
