Kiley puts the needs of the people above politics

To the Editor:

I write as a 25-year resident of Fairfield and a member of the “sandwich” generation…those of us juggling the needs of school-age children with aging parents. These dual concerns define many of my personal choices, and I believe I am not alone. Indeed, the town of Fairfield finds itself in similar circumstances. Fairfield has always attempted to balance the needs of our children alongside the needs of our senior citizens. It is a delicate situation that requires a deft touch and awareness that both ends of the town’s population deserve attention.

Thankfully, we have had Kevin Kiley keeping watch. In his fifteen years as a member of the Board of Finance, he has worked tirelessly to meet the needs of both of these cohorts. Kevin is aware that our seniors most often are confronted with physical or financial limitations that require special focus; at the same time, the value and investment of all of our homes, and the future opportunities available to our children, depend on a strong school system. Through 22 years of public service, Kevin has whittled and honed the annual budget to be as fiscally responsible as possible, without overtaxing our citizens and without damaging our schools.

It’s not an easy task, particularly as partisan politics in Fairfield have escalated. Even in tense times, Kevin has always put the needs of the people of Fairfield above politics. I personally worked with Kevin on several issues, and found him to be reasonable, non-partisan and effective. Kevin brings knowledge and compassion to whatever office he occupies. His work on the RTM, BOF, and BOS is a testament to his even-tempered, reasonable approach to each vote. We are extremely fortunate that he wants to serve! I wish all of our public servants were like Kevin: committed to people over politics. We would all be better off.

On June 6th, I’m voting for a civil, sustainable future for Fairfield…which I why I’ll be voting for Kevin Kiley.
