Margaret Horton

Democrat

RTM District 9 candidate

Fairfield

Age 45

Incumbent: Yes

Current job: The Dialectical and Cognitive Behavior Therapy Center

Education: Lauralton Hall, Colgate University, Columbia University (MSW)

The most important issue in this election: I'll continue to focus on making sure Fairfield maintains its historic charm while continuing its economic development, and will prioritize issues like education, affordability for families and seniors, and protection of our town assets, including our wetlands and beaches.

Other issues: Actively listening to all residents and working together in a bipartisan way to build consensus together, rather than getting stuck in polarizing rhetoric that pits people against each other.

Family: I am a married mother of two children, aged 5 and 7, both students at Sherman Elementary School.

Previous elected offices, community group affiliations: Current RTM Representative for District 9 and Secretary of the Education and Recreation Committee; Co-chair of the Sherman Elementary School Walkathon; and Member of the Gaelic American Club
