Chairman’s Message

Dear Fellow Republicans,

As the Fairfield Republican Town Committee Chairman, I would like to welcome you to our website.  The Fairfield Republican Party is a strong and vibrant organization committed to keeping Fairfield an affordable and special place to live while providing top notch services and award winning schools to our residents.

 

The success of our party locally depends on residents who volunteer their time to either serve the community on a board or commission or within the Republican Town Committee.  Our doors are wide open to anyone who wants to step forward and get involved.

The statement that “all politics are local” rings true here in Fairfield.  While many of our members share many social views with our Democratic counterparts, there is a clear divide in philosophy when it comes to operation of our government and spending.  The current Democratic administration has proposed substantial tax increases of the past several years with no talk of any reforms.  Fairfield Republicans were able to substantially reduce that increase with careful thought and consideration and without harming services.   However, our work has only just begun.

Moving forward, we face strong challenges.  We must work hard to win back our majority on the RTM.  Most importantly, we need to win back the First Selectman’s seat (aka: Mayor) in order to begin the reforms we have talked about for so long.  In order to do all this, we need to get our message out and we need volunteers to help support and work with our candidates to assure victories.

I again thank you for visiting our website.  I hope you will come visit our site often, attend an event and/or come to a meeting.  Working together we will continue to build a better Fairfield and try to save our State from the financial mess we currently face.

Sincerely,

James Millington
Chairman
