Invest in Transportation

Our proximity to New York City is a major driver of our property values. 

 

Appraisal company Miller Samuel found that every extra minute spent commuting is over $11,000 off your homes sale price. But our Metro North trains are 20 minutes slower each way than they were 20 years ago. 

 

And, trains on our neighboring lines average a 10 minute shorter commute from stations further from the city than Fairfield is. 

 

We must do better. I am committed to focusing on policy and solutions rather than partisan politics.
