Cristin McCarthy Vahey


Fairfield, CT

Cristin McCarthy Vahey was elected to her first term in Connecticut's General Assembly in 2014, following three years as a Fairfield Selectman. Trained as a social worker, Cristin has found these skills critical in building coalitions to support integrated, multi-modal transportation options.

Cristin was instrumental in Fairfield's efforts to create a bike and pedestrian master plan and establish a permanent standing committee for the town. Her new role as a member of both the Transportation Committee as well as the Transportation sub-committee for Appropriations provides her with an opportunity to continue to advocate for effective and future oriented transportation solutions.
