A resident of Norwalk since 2013, Aimee Malloy Ableman got involved with her daughters’ preschool and elementary schools right after moving to town as a way to meet the teachers and other school families. Aimee joined the PTA’s executive committee where she served as PTA Co-President, School Governance Council (SGC) Parent Representative, coordinator of the PTA’s email communications, and Carnival Co-Chair. While her children were at Rowayton School, she passionately worked on and advocated for the Cafeteria Redesign Project under the SGC, which resulted in a renovation to the existing lunchroom to brighten the environment, improve acoustics and air flow, update the furniture to round conversation-improving tables and individual chairs, and link the theme of the room to Norwalk’s beautiful coastline. This project and the coordination between NPS administration, PTA, SGC and the City of Norwalk acts as a pilot for new school buildings and renovations. Aimee is currently co-chairing the annual day of service to local organizations at her daughters’ school.
Aimee is a native of Pittsburgh, PA. She earned a B.A. in Public Policy from Indiana University’s School of Public and Environmental Affairs and a Master’s Degree in Industrial Relations from Queen’s University in Ontario, Canada. After completing her education, Aimee began her career in human resources and labor relations with the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care. At the Ministry of Health, her number one priority at work was to build trusting and productive working relationships between managers, employees and union representatives while pursuing the business of the government and respecting the collective bargaining agreements that regulated the terms and conditions of work. She was involved in many mediations and arbitrations, honing her research, organizational and negotiating skills. After relocating to New York, Aimee continued in this field within higher education and later, the retail industry..
Aimee has always followed politics and agrees with the adage, “All Politics is Local”. She proudly includes herself in the rush of female candidates since 2020 that are new to holding political office. As a parent in Norwalk, she wants to ensure that all students have and will always have access to excellent public education and city services that match or exceed all cities and school districts in Connecticut, not just urban areas. She believes in strong public goods and services for Norwalk residents in all stages of life and contends that we need to hold Hartford more accountable for decisions that have a direct impact on our quality of life in Norwalk. If elected to the Norwalk Democratic Town Committee for District E, she will work to endorse and support Democratic candidates for local, state and national office that share this vision.
If you wave to Aimee while she is driving or walking her dog around Norwalk and she doesn’t wave back, she is likely engrossed in WNYC’s Brian Lehrer Show, Fresh Air with Terri Gross on NPR or The Daily podcast on the New York Times app. She and her family love to play paddle tennis and ski with each other in the winter and enjoy the Long Island Sound in the summer.
