I am proud to be the Chair of the Wallingford DTC since April 2020. I have lived in Connecticut my whole adult life, starting out after graduating college as a union organizer for Local 34 at Yale University. I worked for the union through the strike of 2004, then focused on our young family and working with my husband building our two businesses here in Wallingford. After our first child was born, I joined the board of Beth Israel Synagogue and remained on for a total of fifteen years, serving ten as president. I currently work in the solar industry.
My goal for our DTC is to get Democrats elected to office and to create a better future for all Wallingford residents. We need leadership in this town with an eye towards the long-term future, the same type of leadership that started the Wallingford Electric Division a hundred years ago. We have a lot of work to do to make that happen, but I know we can do it. My goal is to be communicating with all the registered Democrats of Wallingford—to hear what they have to say about what is happening in our town and welcome them to come get involved in making the changes we want to see. With outreach, communication, and voter education, we can change the political landscape in this town. Our actions locally will impact globally.
Party Vice-Chair:My husband and I moved to Wallingford in December, 1984. We raised two children in Wallingford, both attending public school. I volunteered at the schools throughout their public school years.
Activism and volunteerism is an integral part of me.
There are many goals that are achievable for our DTC. I am interested in creating more opportunities for people to speak up and volunteer, there is so much to be done. I bring my professional office skills and sales skills to this position along with my time, as I am retired. Everyone has a gift to share with the DTC. With a shared goal of getting our candidates elected to office in Wallingford, we can create real change. There is a role for everyone.
When we work together we make a difference.
