Early on, I learned the value of hard work from my parents, both health care professionals who immigrated from Guyana, South America. My core values are those of inclusion, equity, and social justice. I believe in transparent governance and maximizing access to, and participation in, the democratic process. As a first-generation American, I realize that my parents, through access to educational and economic opportunity, were able to afford their children what can only be described as the American Dream.
I’m Robin Wilt, a native of the Rochester area who has lived in Brighton with my husband, Nick, and our three sons since 2003. Having lived in other parts of the country, we chose to reside in this region because we believe it is the best region to raise a family. My 14-year-old son is a student in public schools, while my two older sons attend college in the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and Bard College of Simon’s Rock.
I have spent my entire adult life advocating for grassroots involvement and political engagement in service to the community. In my role of the Brighton Town Board, I consistently offer a diversity of perspective that aligns with our community’s core values of education, equity and environmental justice.
