Fairfield Republicans re-elect Millington as chairman of the RTC

The Fairfield Republican Town Committee (RTC) announced that it has re-elected James Millington as Chairman during its monthly meeting held on March 7.

Newly elected members of the Fairfield RTC unanimously re-elected Millington to serve a two-year term. In 2015, Millington, a life-long resident and community leader, helped to lead the party to win a majority on the Board of Selectman, the Representative Town Meeting and the other town’s elected commissions and boards. Millington has also facilitated other sweeping changes to the RTC through reforming the party’s caucus system, recruiting quality candidates and has set new records for fundraising.

“It has been an honor to serve as your Chairman over the past four year” said Millington during his speech Monday. “People have heard our calls to control taxes while providing quality services to all residents and know that Fairfield’s Republicans are committed to putting Fairfield first. Our focus has never been stronger thanks to our robust and active membership and volunteers.”

Millington is a Realtor with William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty in Southport. He previously served on the Representative Town Meeting (RTM) for three terms and was the body’s majority leader.

RTM member Edward Bateson was also elected to serve a two-year term as RTC Vice-Chairman.  Bateson has served as the RTC’s Candidate Recruitment Chairman over the past four years.  He is also a member of the RTM in District 1 and the former RTM Majority Leader. Patricia Lucas was re-elected as secretary.

After being sworn in to office by Town Clerk Betsy Browne, Millington appointed Board of Finance Member, David Becker, as Treasurer.  Millington also announced the creation of the position of Finance Director and the newly seated executive committee supported Millington’s appointment of Trumbull resident, Jeff Wright, to the post.  Wright, the former Vice Chairman of the CT State Republican Party in the 4th district, has a vast amount of experience as a campaign manager and professional fundraiser.
