Republican incumbent Livvy Floren is seeking reelection to a seventh term representing Greenwich and a part of Stamford.

She is challenged by Democrat John Blankley, a Greenwich businessman who previously served on the Greenwich Representative Town Meeting.

Floren is a 1964 graduate of Vassar College with a degree in economics and previously worked in public relations. She says, "I am working for you to lower taxes, attract business and create jobs, and protect the environment."

Blankley served on the RTM for four years, sitting on the finance and claims committees. In 2011 he ran unsuccessfully for First Selectman. A chartered accountant, he is part-owner of a computer consulting company, Flagship Networks, which has created 30 jobs in Connecticut.
