Last November, Christine Meiers Schatz ran for her first political office. Like most Westporters, she has little free time. She has four kids; the oldest is 6. Yet as she looked around the town she and her husband moved to (because of those children), she realized her demographic was not well represented in government.
Young mothers don’t have a monopoly on busy lives. Nearly every Westporter juggles work and family commitments. Throw in commuting, taking care of the lawn, gutters, pool and second home, and the volunteer work so many residents throw themselves into, and you can be forgiven for just wanting to binge-watch “Game of Thrones” or “Billions.”
