Ridgefield Democrats Kick Off Campaign with Family-Friendly Fundraising Event on Sept. 10

Ridgefield Democrats, Rudy Marconi and the Lipman Family invite you to a fundraiser to support the Democratic ticket at the Lipman home on Sept. 10, 2023, from 3-5 pm.

The family-friendly “kids welcome” fundraiser will spotlight Board of Education (BOE) Candidates Wyatt Lipman and Jon Paradiso, along with the exceptional 2023 Democratic slate. The Requested donations start at $100 for one adult and up to 4 children with a maximum of $1,000. The address of the event will be provided upon registration.

The theme of the fundraiser is Strong Leadership, Excellent Schools and a Bright Future.

Wyatt Lipman and his wife, Maria, are parents to a 2-year-old daughter, with a new baby on the way. A attorney at Google, Lipman is committed to working side by side with other members of the Board, families, teachers, and our administrators to deliver results for RPS students.

“I’m running for BOE to be an advocate for Ridgefield families as we invest together in the success of every RPS student,” Lipman said. “Our schools are a magnet drawing new families to Ridgefield—including my own—and driving economic growth for the whole town,” Lipman continues. “I’m committed to collaborative leadership, motived by the mission of continually strengthening support for teaching and learning at RPS.”

Jon Paradiso is Dad to two RPS elementary students, and his wife, Ellen, is an educator at Ridgebury Elementary School. Paradiso runs financial operations at start-ups and high-growth businesses where he designs solutions to what initially seem to be insurmountable obstacles.

“On the BOE, Paradiso says, “I will operate with the same resolve and optimism, working closely with families, our administrators, and other Board members to deliver results.”

First Selectman Rudy Marconi will speak at the event. State Treasurer Erik Russell, whose responsibilities include the Connecticut Highter Education Trust (CHET), 529 College Savings Program as well as CT’s Baby Bonds, is an invited guest.
