Elizabeth Zezima

Democrat

Board of Finance candidate

Fairfield

Age 63

Incumbent: yes

Current job: Cargo Operations Manager/CSC Sugar, LLC

Education: Rippowam High School, University of Connecticut

The most important issue in this election: I am proud of my record on the Board of Finance ensuring our tax dollars are spent wisely. I am opposed to making misguided short-term decisions which increase long term costs. I am committed to fiscally thoughtful planning. Most importantly I will continue to support the successes and excellent fiscal stewardship provided by our First Selectman over the past 8 years.

Other issues: I will be a strong voice for all Fairfielders working to restore civility and bipartisanship on the Board of Finance, both of which are essential to good and responsive government.

Family: Divorced, no children. Although the reason I moved to Fairfield was the quality of our schools!
