Lori Charlton

Democrat

Board of Finance candidate

Fairfield

Age 56

Incumbent: no

The most important issue in this election: The challenges Fairfield faces bring an imperative for a fresh look at issues around governance and financial controls that are vitally important - both to our fiscal health and to maintaining the public trust. We need experienced voices in those discussions - problem solvers who are committed to solutions rather than division.

Other issues: Maintaining excellence in education, supporting responsible economic development and investment through commerce and the arts, and keeping Fairfield affordable for all our residents.

Family: Married to Jeff Charlton. Six kids aged 20 through 27. Two grandchildren, with triplets on the way!
