Wake up, Fairfield. People can no longer afford to live here. Just look at all of the houses for sale.

Spending has got to be cut. For example, we cannot afford raises for department heads, bloated and inefficient school administrative costs and unfair assessments on houses. We need to lower the mill rate. We need to help small business owners and attract new businesses.

Speak up! Vote Republican on Nov. 5. Vote out the big spenders.
