Leadership that Listens.
I am honored to be running for the office of First Selectman in Madison. Our town is at a unique crossroads in its history and I believe I have the right skills, experience, and background to move us forward in the right direction. While we live in a spectacular place surrounded by natural beauty and superb schools, we can no longer govern our town with the ways of the past – through a policy of procrastination and stagnation. We are facing significant challenges that threaten our quality of life, anywhere from our aging buildings to our eroding beaches to our shifting demographics, and we need to take action to protect and preserve what we love most. We need leadership that listens to us, reflects the community values of today, and offers us a forward-thinking vision for tomorrow.
My promise to the voters of Madison is to:
Be a respectful, responsive leader that listens to the community
Offer a sustainable vision for the future with a roadmap on how to achieve it
Develop a fiscally responsible, community supported plan that prioritizes our wants versus needs while offering a strong value proposition to the tax payer
Tackle our challenges as a shoreline community by proactively planning for them. This includes climate change, demographic shifts, regionalization, and the state’s fiscal crisis
As a citizen, wife, mother, neighbor, and volunteer, I am deeply committed to maintaining the excellence of our community. I believe I can provide the leadership we need today to plan for our future. I hope to earn your vote on November 5th.
