Catherine Albin is the right choice for Fairfield's Board of Finance. Her 12 years on the Board of Education give her invaluable experience with and insight into dealing with the school board's budget, which is such a major component of the town budget. She stepped onto the Board of Finance and showed that her experience and knowledge are well-suited to the complexities that board has to deal with.

Just as important as Catherine's track record as a thoughtful and educated town board member is her adherence to the rules and regulations under which our boards operate and her constant desire to uphold civility at the board table. She has worked with and will continue to work with members of both parties to ensure that our town makes the best fiscal decisions possible.
