FAIRFIELD — Brenda Kupchick, the Republican candidate for First Selectwoman, and her running mate for Selectman and the current Board of Finance Chairman Tom Flynn, released the following statements in response to hearing that Fairfield’s AAA Bond Rating was reaffirmed by rating agencies.
“Sound financial stewardship of Fairfield will be an extremely important element of governing effectively in the future,” said Kupchick. “It is one reason that I selected Board of Finance Chairman, Tom Flynn, to be my running mate. Through his 10-year leadership as Chairman, Fairfield has maintained its coveted rating and implemented policies to protect the town financially from the external headwinds that have challenged us. I look forward to working with Tom, more directly, as we adopt policies to maintain the bond rating, further strengthening the town financially while also adopting pro-growth policies to lower the burden on taxpayers.”
