Rick McCarty Joins Slate for Zoning Commission

McCarty-cRick McCarty, Brookfield native and business owner, has agreed to run for the Zoning Commission on the Democratic slate — replacing Fran Lollie who stepped off the ticket when his job changed. Rick is yet another Brookfielder who changed his party affiliation from Republican to Unaffiliated to run on the Row A slate.

The Brookfield Democratic Town Committee and the entire Row A team welcome this outstanding candidate. The town is fortunate to have the opportunity to vote for both Rick McCarty and Mara Frankel for Zoning Commission. They’ll work hard to protect the town’s vision for Four Corners and more.

This election is important for Brookfield. We have an outstanding  team that represents all of Brookfield — including former Republicans, Unaffiliated voters and Democrats. Ours is the team committed to working together to restore integrity to Town Hall, managing professionally, committed to hearing and respecting everyone’s voice.

But in order to see the change we all want, we need to elect the entire Row A slate.

Steve Dunn and Sue Slater will need the support of the other boards and commissions as they work to restore civility, restore integrity, and restore the pride that comes with working together across differences to achieve what’s best for everyone.
