After law school, I returned to Connecticut in 2003 to begin my legal career in the Judicial Branch of the State of Connecticut, where I worked directly with judges throughout the state in conducting research and assisting in drafting legal opinions and decisions. Thereafter, I worked at a small law firm where I represented plaintiffs in civil actions. The majority of my legal career (2006-2015) was spent at a reputable law firm in Hartford, where I was a civil litigator who defended businesses and individuals in civil actions that involved professional liability claims, construction defects, personal injury and employment-related claims.
The twelve years I worked as an attorney provided me with invaluable and advantageous tools that would benefit our community if I am elected to the Planning & Zoning Commission. When faced with an application, I will use my skills as a legally educated, critical and meticulous thinker to analyze the facts in conjunction with applicable regulations.
Why I am running for Planning & Zoning:
I want to serve on the Planning & Zoning Commission because it would be an opportunity for me to give back to our wonderful community. I believe my educational background and legal training have provided me with the tools and characteristics that the people of our town will find invaluable in a newly elected member of the P&Z Commission. I want to put my training as a litigator, along with my love for this town, to work on the commission to ensure that the agricultural, historic and residential nature of Suffield remains intact, with the understanding that a fair balance must be struck between preservation and progress.
Once elected, I plan to:
