Mark Robbins, a member of the New Canaan Conservation Commission, calls himself a fiscal conservative and an avid environmentalist. He said he is the first Democrat in 26 years running for this seat.
"One of my greatest strengths, if elected, is a practical one," Mr. Robbins said. "If elected, New Canaan and Wilton will have a seat at the table for the first time in many, many years. I would be not just the fiscal conservative with a successful track record in managing budgets, but I would have a seat at the table as a member of the majority party. For the first time in decades, New Canaan and Wilton would have an opportunity to be heard, not shut out of the discussions. I would be that voice so New Canaan and Wilton could be heard."
