Jayme attended Albright College in Reading for two years before transferring to Arizona State University. She graduated from the Walter Cronkite School of Communication with a Telecommunication and Business Management degree.
Beyond the daily responsibilities of managing a town of 22,000 residents, she has navigated the pandemic, numerous hurricanes, damaging floods and protests throughout her tenure. Beyond Darien’s borders, she was elected by her bipartisan peers to serve as Chairman of numerous regional and statewide governmental organizations. Jayme understands that her work has been successful, in large part, because she’s developed positive working relationships with her residents, local businesses, and Chief Elected colleagues of both major parties and government and non-profit agencies statewide.
Since leaving office, Jayme has continued to expand her community outreach. She serves on the Board of Directors of LifeBridge Community Services in Bridgeport, which provides mental healthcare support and partners with Bridgeport youth and families to build resilience. Jayme recently joined the Board of Directors of Stamford Emergency Medical Services and has served on the Board of Rowan Center, which offers support and counseling for victims of sexual violence, since 2016. Jayme is an active member of Stamford-Norwalk State’s Attorney’s Community Engagement Board.
My priorities are restoring and preserving freedoms that allow every American to pursue happiness and opportunities to be healthy and productive individuals accepted within their communities.
I will bring bi-partisan solutions to Congress. We must revitalize the employment pipeline, fuel small businesses and invigorate entrepreneurship. This will ensure a stable government and strong foundation for our children’s future.
As a mother of five adult children, I understand the many challenges that face families since the pandemic. We need someone in Congress who will advocate for young people, address their mental health concerns, and protect their safety and wellbeing.
The past two years have been exceptionally difficult for Americans – someone needs to stand up and say ENOUGH! – we must expect better from our government. Years of bad policies have resulted in historic inflation, a rise in violent crime, erosion of parental rights in our public schools, and a nationwide mental health and fentanyl crisis. Rebuilding trust and faith in government are mission-critical.
