Cathy Wick

Cathy Wick

First Selectman

Cathy grew up next door to a working dairy farm in nearby Watertown, Connecticut. Her family had horses, chickens, and a 10,000 square foot organic vegetable garden. She and her husband Robert lived in the Westville section of New Haven for a decade before making Woodbridge their home in 1997. They chose Woodbridge for its excellent schools and for its unique combination of being adjacent to New Haven but feeling like it’s “out in the country.” Cathy has been continuously and deeply involved in Woodbridge community affairs for the last fifteen years, serving on several town committees and conservation related boards.

“I care passionately about our Town and its future. I believe Woodbridge should be run in a transparent fashion, in keeping with our New England Town Meeting tradition. The message I have heard from the many townspeople with whom I’ve spoken recently is loud and clear: Woodbridge is on an unsustainable path. Longtime residents from all walks of life fear they cannot afford to stay here in retirement.

“I am not a professional politician, therefore I won’t hide behind political doublespeak. I will be truthful and tackle problems head on. My team and I have a plan to control costs, manage the Town more efficiently, and get Woodbridge back on track without sacrificing our Open Space or our quality of life.”
