Mary Fay is running for a second term on the West Hartford Town Council.


Mary Fay is pleased to announce her re-election campaign for town Council begins Monday, Sept. 9.

Fay is the CEO/Executive Director of the Connecticut Retirement Security Authority. The authority was established to make retirement programs available to employees without access to such a plan. Fay currently serves as a town councilor, and was unanimously selected by the West Hartford Republican Town Committee as candidate for re-election to the council.

A long time financial services senior executive, Fay is pleased to bring her expertise to the 600,000 Connecticut residents who don’t have a retirement strategy.

“I’m pleased to offer my financial acumen and retirement expertise to an underserved market.  I believe in fairness, independence, and self reliance, and everyone deserves a dignified retirement. I expect to continue to bring these principles and financial and business acumen to the business of the town council.”

Fay’s financial expertise has been recognized on the town’s Finance and Budget committee. During this year’s budget process, Fay advocated for a zero tax increase. Many municipalities were able to do this, and some were even able to reduce taxes.

Fay also serves on the human services committee, and has served as a long time West Hartford volunteer. She is credited with pushing forward a “No Tolls” resolution, which she views as a non-partisan issue, and desired by the majority of Connecticut residents, to the council. Unfortunately the resolution failed along party lines.

“I’m running because I love our town, and want to focus on and maintain its  desirability, positive traits, and strong schools, while strengthening its financial position. I also want to protect seniors, small businesses, and working families, who are struggling to stay in town due to cost. We need a strong voice at the table that represents Republican, Independent, and non-affiliated voters, and uses common sense to vote with the majority when it is best for our town.  My record shows that I’ve been able to accomplish this by maintaining my ‘purple’ values.”
