Clinton Democratic Town Committee

Christine Goupil – Town Council

This is a pivotal point for Clinton’s future and it requires a strong leader ready to take action. Christine Goupil is committed to realizing Clinton’s potential by making it the place to do business on the Shoreline. After years of fighting for long-term, sustainable growth as a two-term elected official on the Planning and Zoning Commission, and as Clinton’s First Selectman for the past two years, Christine continues to build pride in our community through tremendous progress. The Indian River Landing development at the old Morgan school site is scheduled to begin, and Goupil was able to secure a grant that helped drive the purchase of a factory that Unilever closed years ago. Clinton’s train station is undergoing significant renovations which are slated for completion in January 2021 due to Goupil and the Board of Selectmen’s strong advocacy in Hartford. 

Christine has distinguished herself as a public servant, volunteer, and advocate for the Town of Clinton. She is respected for her ability to communicate her passion and vision for the Town and to build the bi-partisan support necessary to move projects forward. She looks forward to working with both residents and business owners seeking to create a more vibrant, positive, and proactive Clinton and to make our town the Jewel of the Shoreline.

  • Vision, Commitment, and Hard Work
    I’m probably not the only one to notice all the progress that’s finally taking place in Clinton.

The old Morgan site, something everyone in town has wanted sold and on the tax rolls, finally has a secure developer. To ...
