Our City has amazing schools, parks, public services and a responsive government that listens to our citizens. Our task is to preserve these special qualities, and while keeping city government affordable for all.

Critical differences between me and my opponents:

Candidates from both parties are looking for the best for Greenwich. For my part, I try to pay close attention to the effect of our government on every citizen, and both the very rich and everyone else.
