“Marie understands the important issues facing our town,” says Mayor Scott Kaupin. “She is will prepared to be part of the town council and provide her experience and enthusiasm for the community. Marie is a strong volunteer and will be a strong voice for District 4 residents.”

Faith, family values and a commitment to Enfield drive Marie Pyznar to serve. Whether helping to bag hunger in support of local food banks or being part of the organization of the Amy Romano Annual Field Hockey tournament, service is a quintessential part of Marie’s character. Amy Romano was an outstanding teacher and a wonderful field hockey coach” says Marie. “She always brought out the best in people. Amy coached my daughter and we both miss her to this day. I am proud to help out with this event in her memory and I will for many years to come.”

From 1996 to 2006, Marie was the Chairperson of Children Helping Children, an organization dedicated to raising money and awareness for local children diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses. “We were able to help with medical bills, or special needs for these children and it warmed my heart to see how Enfield helped so many of these kids who were struggling. I felt it was the least I could do,” said Marie.

Being on the economic development and revitalization commission Marie found a place for her passion. These are two areas that are her top priorities. “We need to look at the Mall with fresh eyes. When it was built 50+ years ago, it was a new idea that has now run its course. Today the Mall needs some new and invigorating prospects and having been involved with the economic development commission I am confident there are opportunities waiting, ” says Marie.

To Marie, serving on the Town Council is a natural extension of her life-long commitment to Enfield. “I’ve lived in Enfield my whole life. Raised my children and got involved with their school activities. I had my business here and today the work I do allows me to interact with so many people who are more than customers, but friends. These circles of people have given me an intimate understanding of the needs and concerns of town, ” explains Marie.
