Candidate for Fairfield’s Board of Finance, Catherine Albin received support and endorsement by Lieutenant Governor Nancy Wyman and Attorney General George Jepsen during her Oct. 12 campaign event. Albin is currently running for a full four-year term after being appointed to Fairfield’s Board of Finance in 2012 to fill a vacancy, according to a release from the Fairfield DTC.
Lieutenant Governor Wyman applauded Albin's extensive and long-term service to Fairfield and described Albin as the "perfect candidate for the future of Fairfield." Attorney General Jepsen, who has known Albin for many years, highlighted her intelligence, hard work, integrity and determination, according to the release.
“We need to find balance between taxes and keeping our schools great, which I have accomplished in both my role as a member of the Board of Finance and 12 years of Board of Education, three years as Chairman,” Albin said in the release. “As a current member of the Board of Finance, I believe I have brought a voice of balanced, responsible leadership for Fairfield – knowing when to hold the line on taxes while ensuring the schools receive proper funding. Residents can count on me to provide bipartisan leadership and ensure fiscal responsibility to protect Fairfield’s future.”
