10/8/2021 - 10.8 TOWN UPDATE
Dear Fairfielders,

The month of October is Breast Cancer and Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Last Friday, I was honored to join warriors against breast cancer at the 7th annual Pink Pledge and Jam. I have walked with our community for the last seven years in support of Norma Pfriem Breast Center and Fairfield’s own Pink Pledge Warrior Donna Twist. The Norma Pfriem Breast Center has impacted the well-being of the Greater Fairfield County community by placing life-saving healthcare options within reach of everyone, and I wish continued success to Dr. Donna Twist and to the staff, physicians, and care providers of the Norma Pfriem Breast Center. 

This week, the Police Department went purple in recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Domestic violence is often considered a hidden issue that happens behind closed doors, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Raise awareness about the signs of domestic violence. Talk to your friends and family, coworkers, and neighbors. Together, we can end domestic violence. To learn more, go to

Domestic Abuse Hotline - 203.384.9559, Sexual Assault Hotline - 203.333.2233

I am proud Fairfield has gone pink and purple this month.

On Tuesday night, the Board of Finance (BOF) met to discuss the Town's $9.3 million surplus, which was largely created from the Town budgeting for a lower tax collection rate than was actually collected. The Town also achieved savings on the expense side, mostly due to lower personnel costs. The BOF voted to transfer $1.3 million of the expense surplus to contractual commitments for the retired Town employee healthcare fund. This left approximately $1.7 million of the $3 million expense surplus that they voted to transfer to the Town's Fund Balance.
During the meeting, I provided the Board of Finance with an update on the ongoing expected costs related to the fill pile contamination and public corruption that occurred under the former administration. While it would have be my preference for the Town to use the remaining approximately $6 million in revenue surplus, to reduce the tax burden on our residents, I felt it was important to recommend the remaining surplus be deposited into the Town's fill pile fund, towards the mounting costs for remediation.

The projected contamination costs that I presented are estimates based on preliminary evaluations by environmental consultants, but even at the low end of the range of costs, the numbers are staggering. You can watch the outline I gave to the BOF here. I will be bringing the item for a vote before the Board of Selectmen on October 18 and I will ask the BOF and RTM to do the same. 

There is a spreadsheet for residents to view the status of the sites on our website, and linked here.
I was very disheartened by the recent politicization regarding the Charter Revision Commission (CRC) by some elected officials and members of our community. I hope that we will all keep an open mind throughout this process, and listen to all ideas that come forward. I certainly will, because this is a genuine effort to improve Fairfield's governing document.

It was not my obligation under State Statute, but rather my decision, to appoint a balanced commission that consists of 3 Democrats, 3 Republicans and 1 unaffiliated member. For some to suggest that this process is somehow tainted, while it has just started, is unfortunate. I appreciate and respect these residents who have stepped forward and agreed to volunteer their time on the CRC in service to our community. 

I want to remind our residents that the point of this commission is for everyone in our community to bring forth ideas and suggestions. You may feel there are no changes needed, and that's okay too. I've provided a link to the charter below, that you may find helpful to review. I will be making recommendations to the commission based on my experiences over the last two years, including making sure our Charter aligns with the Town Code, re-examining purchasing and contract oversight, and ensuring sure we have all the government we need, but only the government need. Our Town Attorney and department heads will similarly be making recommendations.

While the Board of Selectmen will be presented recommendations to vote on from the CRC, the ultimate decision on any changes to our Town Charter will be up to all residents of Fairfield on the 2022 Election Day ballot.

The CRC held its second meeting on Wednesday evening, which was a public hearing to receive feedback and recommendations on changes to the Charter. You can watch the public hearing here

All updates will be posted on the website linked below. To read my earlier update with more background on this process, click hereYou can write to the commission at As you would in a public meeting, please include your name and address with your comment. All comments received and verified will be included in the minutes with your name and address. Your email address will be excluded.

My proposal to the Town boards to spend the $24.8 million in federal funds has been approved, and my administration is now working to get these projects off the ground. 

We put together a comprehensive package that will have a broad impact on our community – some urgent and long neglected needs like Rooster River flooding mitigation, downtown flooding in the business district, funds to pave roads in disrepair, and fix or connect sidewalks. Additionally, the funding for the Police Department’s body and dash cameras over the next 10 years will put the Town in compliance with recent State legislative mandates and will take pressure off the Town's annual operating budget.

Other projects include a study for beach erosion and coastal resiliency, funding for air conditioning at Fairfield Woods Middle School, ADA compliance, upgrades for the Bigelow Center for Senior Activities (including a new outdoor patio), new playgrounds for multiple neighborhoods across Town, and funding for nonprofits, to address the growing mental health and financial hardships as a result of the pandemic. There is also $1 million appropriated toward the mounting costs associated with the remediation and cleanup from the ongoing fill pile catastrophe. Some of the items on the list will also provide savings in future Town budgets and projects that were on the long-term capital plan that will reduce debt service.

I am grateful for the tremendous amount of feedback and input from our residents over the last two months. It has been almost two years since I took office and there have been many challenges, but I have been listening and I will continue to do my best for our community.

Last Friday I sent an interim update announcing my decision to lift the Town wide mask mandate. You can read the information here. This decision was made in consultation with our Health Director and Emergency Management Director, after seeing a consistent downward trend across case rates and hospitalizations, and an increase in our community's vaccination rate. Fairfield’s current positivity rate is 1.1% and yesterday the Town was downgraded to the yellow category. Connecticut’s seven-day positivity rate dropped to 1.7%. Hospitalizations in Fairfield County are down to 37, 18 less than when we lifted the mandate last week. 

The Town is following the CDC guidance that recommends masks be worn indoors and when in close contact with others.

Some residents have written in saying the decreasing trends are evidence the mask mandate worked. And while I respect and understand why one would draw that conclusion, I would just say that there are many towns in our state that don’t have mask mandates in effect and have similar or lower case rates than Fairfield. We are monitoring trends not just as a Town, but also as a county, state and country.

The NY Times published an update this week that said the number of new daily cases in the U.S. has fallen 35 percent since Sept. 1 and worldwide cases have dropped more than 30 percent since late August. Read the full article, 
"Covid, in Retreat". 

I continue to ask residents to please be respectful to each other, regarding differences of opinion regarding masks, because in the end, we are all neighbors and are all dealing with the added stress this pandemic has caused in different ways.
Currently, the Fairfield Health Department is NOT hosting any COVID-19 vaccination clinics. If clinics are scheduled, be sure to follow our social media accounts and news section on our website for updated information.

Booster (3rd shot) COVID-19 Vaccine for those who are moderately or severely immunocompromised ONLY
Effective August 13, 2021 the CDC has recommended that individuals who are moderately or severely immunocompromised and received either Pfizer or Moderna, are eligible to receive a third dose of either Pfizer or Moderna, if it has been at least 28 days since their second dose. Eligible individuals include:

  • Active treatment for solid tumor and hematologic malignancies
  • Receipt of solid-organ transplant and taking immunosuppressive therapy
  • Receipt of CAR-T-cell or hematopoietic stem cell transplant (within 2 years of transplantation or taking immunosuppression therapy)
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (e.g. DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
  • Advances or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteriods (i.e.,>20mg prednisone or equivalent per day), alkylating agents, antimetabolites, transplant-related immunosuppressive drugs, cancer chemotherapeutic agents classified as severely immunosuppressive, tumor-necrosis (TNF) blockers, and other biologic agents that are immunosuppressive or immunomodulatory.
Booster (3rd shot) COVID-19 Vaccine for those who received Pfizer Vaccine ONLY
On September 22, 2021 the FDA amended the emergency use authorization (EUA) for the Pfizer vaccine ONLY. Individuals who received Pfizer are eligible to receive a single boost dose as long as it has been at least 6 months since their second dose. Eligible individuals include:
  • individuals 65 years of age and older
  • individuals 18-64 years of age at high risk for severe COVID-19
  • individuals 18-64 years of age whose frequent institutional or occupational exposure to SARs-CoV-2 puts them at high risk of serious complications of COVID-19 including severe COVID-19
Booster (3rd shot) COVID-19 Vaccine for those who received Moderna or Johnson and Johnson
While we anticipate there will be at some point, at this time, there is no approval for a Moderna or Johnson and Johnson booster (3rd dose) vaccine. The FDA is scheduled to meet later this month to approve a potential booster shot for individuals who received Moderna or Johnson and Johnson.

While the health department does not currently offer any booster clinics for those who are immunocompromised or those who received the Pfizer vaccine, you can check the local pharmacies as they are currently giving these out. The health department will continue to monitor the approval process.

The Fairfield Police Department is increasing its crime-fighting arsenal with a new app to help residents connect with the department to find information and submit anonymous tips from their smartphone. 

The new Fairfield PD app enables the public to share an anonymous tip with police and lets officers respond back to create an anonymous two-way conversation. The Fairfield PD app and Tip411 anonymous text a tip system are 100% anonymous, as the technology removes all identifying information before police see the tips and there is no way to identify the sender.

The Fairfield PD app is available for download for free via the Google Play Store, iTunes App Store or on their website at Those without a smartphone can share information with police by sending an anonymous text tip via their cell phone to police by texting keyword FPDCT and their message/tip to 847411 (tip411). Anonymous web tips can also be submitted via the department’s website at

On Monday, our Police Department did a great job hosting a Senior Scam Workshop at St. Pius. While our seniors are especially vulnerable to scams like these, I felt I should share some of the information with all of our community. Click here to read the tips.

On September 23, Fairfield resident and acclaimed architect Leigh Overland, along with his wife Nancy Evans, unveiled their residential home at 110 Shoreham Terrace, built entirely of sustainable insulated concrete forms (ICFs). As opposed to the traditional wood frames, the ICFs make the home both storm, fireproof, and mold/mildew-proof. 

I want to thank our Community Economic and Development Director Mark Barnhart for attending the ribbon cutting in my place and congratulate Leigh and Nancy on the bringing new innovation to Fairfield.
